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

what a trip - i think we hit 5,000 feet, but i've misplaced my gps, so no accuracy there other than the old internal is a nice shot from a mule's back as we traversed a ridge. way down below, our destination, is the rio joca - clear and cool.

and, before i forget, after i arrived home last night, around 8:30 pm, a woman came to me crying and told me that her pig was in jail. literally, as in under lock and key in the police station. it had gotten out and eaten the neighbor's flowers. i learned that the local fine was 100 pesos to have the pig freed from it's cell.
