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

Our kittens are over two months old this week, so their off to make new homes. Fr. Gee looks forward to another litter. We had plenty of requests for these three, two of which we needed to go to work in two of our off site properties.

The parish of San José is near ready to host the diocesan assembly this Saturday. Some 350 persons including Bishop Grullón are expected for this full day event of meetings and more meetings. The pastor, Fr. Murphy, couldn't have more confidence in his staff to guide the day to success.
