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

happy father's day to all you fathers, especially mine. it'd be great to be able to watch the final round of the pga with my dad, but, as he perpetually instructed me as a child, duty comes first, so i hope at least all the rest of you fathers get to enjoy the day with your families.

it's scorching hot down here. egg-frying on the hood of the truck hot. pray for some rain.

this evening we will receive a visitor and then a slew of them come down. i believe we'll have guests until august 3rd or so, so please keep them in your prayers.
