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

Thursday is the day for the evening Mass in Pedro Santana. One of the great things about being a pastor of a small town like Pedro Santana is that when you have a funeral Mass on a Thursday you don't need to celebrate the daily Mass that evening because anyone who would attend that Mass was at the funeral you had.
