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

happy lent!

we have begun with Masses and Ashes, white ashes of course. for the first time ever we had the school kids for Mass. not just the catholic school kids, but also the local high school and grade school. so, we had a packed church at 0800 and then the whole educational system cranked up at 9.
