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

just when i thought i had seen every possible critter in my office, i was again suprised. to wit: i have seen various spiders, rats, mice, snakes, scorpions, tarantulas, crickets, ants, lizards, mosquitos, flies, and probably some i have forgotten. then, about 8:30 last night i enter the office and the dog starts barking and scratching. what do i see on the floor, huddled against a plastic tool case? a crab. that's correct, a good old-fashioned crab about 3 inches wide with some nice sized claws. our only guess is that he climbed up from the river...i wonder what's next????
