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'm seriously struggling with the prevailing idea down here that sunday Mass is optional. or at least, that if the rollers are still in your hair then you are excused. pray that God gives us the words to help combat this long-standing tradition...we're having salad tonight - sure, that's correct, salad, well, home made french fries too - from our garden. how's that for a nice early crop of this horse-radish tasting leaf lettuce.
