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 Easter! what an excellent three days we had, we are truly blessed.

i'd like to wish annie quast, our nurse practioner who has spent 16 months down here working in town, in the campos, and in haiti, a round of thanks for her work. she has left us and returned to the states - say a prayer for her, she spent a lot of time caring for the people and all will miss her.
