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

to those of you wondering about the status of the marymount and charlottesville groups:

most of them left their homes friday morning around 5:00 am and they arrived in banica saturday night at 10:00 pm. that's the worst travel foul-up i've seen in my almost 5 years.

thankfully, all are well and motivated to get to work tomorrow.
