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 feast of Corpus Christi!! after Mass we had a procession around the park. as we began it was drizziling a bit, but with hardly a cloud in the sky. oddly though, as soon as we entered the church and reposed the Blessed Sacrament, a downpour the likes rarely seen began and lasted for 20 minutes. a few of us went outside and just let the high pressure flood of water from heaven just shower us...the rest cranked up a rosary and as soon as they finished the rain stopped.
