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, lots going on here and i don't have my camera (don't ask). however, maria is doing a fine job of documenting the various events.

she hasn't posted on the big fiesta yet, but i suspect she will. it went very well. as a matter of fact, i can't, in my 5 years here, remember such a fine not-so-little party. there were plenty of people and some nice little remembrances of things we've done over the last 5 years.

a couple of days left. we're blessing the new grotto in the center tomorrow morning that mrs kirby had built.

happy feast of our Lady of Mt. Carmel (a day early).
