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

i would like to take some time out of our regular routine to thank the merciful maidens of holy trinity parish - an intrepid group of 9-11 year old girls who made "cookies in a jar" and sold them at the Christmas baazar. i guess you can just add some butter and eggs and then cook up the stuff and you have good cookies. in any event, they sold enough jars to donate $180 to the school. so, thanks young ladies, keep praying for us. (if you have any extra cookies feel free to send them down to the address on the right...)
