Oh, Texas!  Where it can be frozen ground and five inches of snow one day, then a balmy, sunny  75 degrees with no snow in sight, just  24 hours later. God willing, we will have Mass at the Teocalli this Sunday, but please check the website if rain is threatening.







Once the Lord said to me,

"Act like a beggar who does not back away when he gets
more alms than he asked for, but offers thanks the more fervently.

You too, should not back away and say that you are not worthy    
of receiving greater graces when I give them to you.

I know you are unworthy, therefore rejoice all the more
and take as many  treasures from My Heart as you can carry,
for then you will please Me more.

And I will tell you one more thing –
take these graces not only for yourself, but also for others;
that is, encourage the souls with whom you come in contact 
to trust in My infinite mercy. 

 Oh, how I love those souls who have complete confidence in Me –
I will do everything for them."

Faith, So That God Can Act

Dear St. Joseph, you are our Good Father.  You trusted God when the Angel came to you and said to take your young wife and infant son into Egypt, where you knew no one and had no job prospects. Help us to turn to God with confidence, trusting that if we have Faith, He will act.



Mutant Mission Mice?

As we recover from our Week of Extreme Winter, an unusual phenomenon is showing up in the buildings at the Mission and Community houses. In almost every structure, there are multiple holes in the walls that appear to have been created by large mutant mice.  


Of course the real culprits were frozen water pipes connecting to outside spigots that froze in the walls,  despite our best attempts to wrap and insulate them on the outside. When the thaw hit, the water started flowing out under baseboards throughout the Mission.  It was a series of minor deluges. We have all been busy moving furniture and mopping up water while Dave, Steve, Robert and friends have been cutting into the walls to repair the pipes.

We have also experienced a few geysers, fountains and unexpected ponds as underground pipes erupt with the thaw.  Full recovery will take a while.

We want to thank all of you who kept the Mission and our Community in your prayers.  We feel very fortunate that it wasn't worse.  We ask you to please continue praying for those for whom it was worse.

The Desert of Mother Teresa

Only after the death of St. Teresa of Calcutta did we learn of the inner “desert” she was living, devoid of consolation, struggling against doubts and darkness.  She was sharing in the Passion of Jesus and in the temptations many experience today.  Her example can help us when we too encounter this dark desert.
