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 think i have finally recovered from the paralysis of a 4-day diocesan workshop.

big things in store for the mission:

today marks the one year annivesary of the arrival of the dog. he came struggling in 1 year ago today as a barely alive pup and now runs 45 kph.

happy ordination day to all the new priests of the diocese of arlington.

seton high school arrived last night. then comes paul vi. then the group from the diocesan youth office. then kids from foccus. so we have a busy summer.

and, since the rainy season is upon us in all its force, i would ask for a few additional prayers as fr murphy and i slip and slide our way through the mud troughs and water holes. as you can see from the pic below, when the tires get this muddy the bike has less traction than a small girl wearing glass slippers on an ice rink. so, a few extra prayers for safety would be appreciated.
