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

just a quick post to let you all know that everyone is fine - the mountains keep us well sheltered and drain water, unlike poor haiti, which is a mess on the north shore.

today, after attending to spiritual needs, will be spent building the desks for the school kids. the chairs were painted yesterday and we're moving in beginning this afternoon - i'm happy to report that registrations are up and should increase once we actually open the doors to the public.

keep gonaives (destroyed haitian town) in your prayers.
