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

it's been a while, i apologize, but things have been busy:

the kirby's took off on vacation.

20 students from christendom college arrived and will be spending the summer here doing work projects for two weeks and catechism/art/sport camps for 5 weeks. they might learn some spanish as well.

i had my 13th anniversary as a priest.

michelle went on vacation and returned.

my motorcycle broke down and i had to do a roadside carburetor removal and repair. missed Mass for the second time in 5 years.

i administered oral final exams to the 75 or so students that maria has been teaching for the last year. only 5 or so failed. not too bad.

we had to get rid of one of the dogs because the idiot started biting people without reason or warning. he's now living with someone else tied up. very sad.

i celebrated first communion in two different places. for pictures and details please visit maria's blog.

the rains have begun in earnest and everything is green and lush.

hurricane season is officially here.

that's all the news that's fit to print.
