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

don't know if i'll have time to post before i head out tomorrow morning, but i would like to ask everyone to pray for me the next couple of weeks as i go on my anual silent retreat. i'll certainly be praying for all of you - see you in a couple of weeks for my 2 year anniversary down here (may 1).
