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

believe it or not, this nasty finger fungus which afflicted me last year is back. in the exact same spot. big purple blood blister. how could it return to the exact same spot? must be some deeply imbedded bit of third world nasty micro-organism that just refuses to die.
