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

for some solid reporting of the week's events, including lots of pictures, please head over to maria's blog. she's done a fine job of summing things up so far.

okay, it's Holy Saturday and i just have to say that yesterday, Good Friday, was the quietest on record. so maybe those 7 weeks preaching about Christ's Death and the importance of keeping a solemn Good Friday actually convinced a few people.
