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

here is the first pic of the adoration chapel - painting the sanctuary, kneelers, and high altar tomorrow. hopefully we'll be open within one week!!! (update: having looked at the picture, it's quite deceiving because the ceiling is about 12 feet high, which you cannot see, and the walls are white, not washed out yellow like it appears. i'll get a more accurate color pic after we paint.)
