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

i'm tired. we've had 11 people die in the last month. 1% of our total population has passed away in one month. odd.

fyi - it looks like our internet, due to some issues with the brazilians and americans, will be down for an undetermined time beginning on june 30th. so, we will basically be out of communication for "God only knows how long"; i suspect at least a week. therefore, in case of any emergency there is really nothing we can do. so everybody stay healthy and we just won't have any surprises when we get back online...
