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

it's that time of year again folks: every house in the entire parish has been visited and 20 questions asked and answered. the data is all in and the bishop will be here this afternoon to begin his annual pastoral visit combined with the yearly confirmations. it entails lots of long meetings, so prayers would be greatly appreciated.
