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

ladies and gentlemen, the time has come for my yearly retreat. i'm heading out this morning with great hope that i can land in philly this afternoon in the midst of a thunder snow. pray my friend fr hamill finds a worthy vehicle for the pick up...

i'll be praying for all of you - please keep me in your prayers, i'll post something after retreat.
