The Missions: San Francisco and San José

Unless the mission is oriented by charity, that is, unless it springs from a profound act of divine love, it risks being reduced to mere philanthropic and social activity...Consequently, being missionaries means loving God with all one's heart, even to the point, if necessary, of dying for him. - Pope Benedict XVI

well folks it's been a busy 3.5 months and it's time for this parish priest to go on retreat. so, because of the potential trouble due to the elections which will be held tomorrow, i have to go into the capital a day early, spend the night, and then head off to pray. i'll be gone for about 10 days, so keep me in your prayers as you will be in mine.

just a quick update on things around here:

my pig is ready to pop. the talk is 10-12 piglets. we'll see...

i have 4 little chickens - two of which are egg layers! they should begin laying within a month or so.

my turkeys continue to enjoy life, but they haven't layed any eggs yet.

should be new priest down here sometime this summer.

we have collected over 37,000 for the school - we just need 13 more! thanks to all those who have donated and helped out.

the official "Christendom College Summer School Program" begins in a couple of weeks, with 10 students coming down to take spanish and theology class...

that's it for now - God bless
