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

today i went to pomito, one of my favorite places, about 45 minutes on bike and another 45 uphill. the interesting part of the journey, well, aside from the two young bulls who were locked in mortal combat in the middle of the road and whose mother almost killed me as she blasted into them to stop the battle, and the two hogs 50 feet later who were doing the same thing, was a tip i received from fr murphy about a 75 foot water fall on the way to pomito. i checked it out and it looks like we'll be doing a little cliff diving once the rain starts and the pool at the bottome fills up to an adequate depth.
