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 only did 60 baptisms today. had to leave 60 more undone due to the tardiness of the un-baptized. we arrived home after 3 hours on the bikes only after coaxing this 1000 steer out of the road: he had crossed the road with a rope around his neck and created a dangerous situation - we couldn't cross the without decapitaing ourselves, but he didn't want to move either. amazing what a couple of thin sticks can do to motivate such a large animal...

someone requested that the site contain a site feed, so there is a link on the side bar. for those who are interested, if you have an rss reader you can subscribe to the feed and it will notify you whenever there has been a change to the site. i haven't tried it yet, so i need to confirm that it works. maybe someone can leave a message in the forum to let me know if it's up and functioning.

all day priests meeting tomorrow. our first boxing matches on sunday too...
