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

we need a new truck:

the other day someone told me the truck was broken. i didn't think much of it as i was busy. then, yesterday, fr murphy told me the steering wheel was locked and wouldn't unlock. so, we took apart the molding around the steering wheel and tried to find the problem. after a few minutes of banging on things i said to myself, "no, it can't be." we got out the spare key and the thing unlocked perfectly. sure, the truck is so old and well used that the key has actually worn down to the point that it doesn't work...
