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

okay, i don't have much to say other than i am still impressed by the number of people that come to stations of the cross and the soup dinner every friday.

wait, i do have something to say:

an evil tradition has crept into the banica mindset and culture. they choose Good Friday as the number one party day of the year. so, i began on the first sunday of lent and will continue every sunday of lent to preach the importance of silence and meditation and penance on the day of Christ's death. we will see what happens...
