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

my dog is injured. looks like a rear-paw hairline fracture. he decided to accompany me to the center yesterday and ran ahead of me: average speed 36.1 k/hr, total distance 1.5 kilometers. for the metrically deficient, that's 22.43 mph over .93 miles. after that sprint he decided to stay in the center for a while. when he finally made it back down to the house (thanks to a ride in the truck from maria) he slept for 18 hours and since this morning has been limping around. we'll give him a couple of days before we begin robotics surgery.
