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

our first group of the year will be down tonight - marymount university arrives for the third consecutive year. they will be followed by a whole slew of groups beginning in may.

since they will be working in pedro santana, i'll leave it to fr murphy to keep you all posted.

otherwise, all is well. the friday soup dinner after stations had about 100 people last week.

i continue my onslaught about Good Friday (for more info see 2 posts below this one). only a few weeks left of lent, so it'll be interesting to see if this does any good.

that's it, enjoy the 29th of feb.
