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

It has come to my attention that a few of you may be concerned about my well being. Life in Haiti looks riotous from the media reports. Relax, all is quiet on our western front. The major part of my yesterday was spent in and around Haiti and yes, the country side is in flames, children run naked, the road ways are barely passible, but that's normal and no one seems upset about things.
