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, time for a post-Triduum update:

i hope you all have followed the proceedings on maria's blog.

i spoke with a few people today and all agree that this was the finest Triduum in recent memory. we had great weather, great participation, and there was a sense (at least in part) that the Triduum is all about God.

the town has calmed down and the visitors have all departed, leaving us with a serenity that can only be found during the Easter Octave in a small town.

now, if the rain would just start falling...
