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

we've begun a new thing for lent with the youth group:

using a projector and dvd player with a homeade 4x8 screen made from masonite and painted white, we are showing the Passion of Christ in 7 segments. so, each wed evening during youth group we watch a little and then have a discussion. last wednesday went very well. the kids remained focused throughout the betrayal and agony in the garden and then proceeded to bombard me with questions and comments. very solid. definitely a fine way for 50 teenagers to spend an evening.

i'll keep you posted on how we progress.
