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

i will head to san juan, the seat of the diocese of san juan, for an ordination to the priesthood, which will occur under a tree in a school because the cathedral enlargement project has stalled. but we will celebrate with great joy, nonetheless, the ordination of yet another native priestly vocation. with more in the pipeline, vocations in the diocese look good. so make sure and say a prayer for the new fr rodrigo if you feel so inclined.
