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

5 days of amoeba in the stomach might stunt my growth, but only time will tell.

hopefully the little parasitical maniacs have all died and i can get back to jalapenos and hot sauce without the obligatory 9.8 second 100 meter sprint to the nearest outhouse.

otherwise things are just fine down here. the christendom students left, and hopefully have arrived back in the states. the boys stayed up in a village and poured a cement floor, while the girls remained in banica and hung stations of the Cross in various chapels. another great visit from the kids from front royal.
