One of the sadder HH trends:

-Baptized six months ago
-Apostate
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Not very hyperdox, is it?  No, the more hyperdox option would be:  Became a catechumen six months ago, applying to every seminary to become a priest.

Disagree. It's very hyperdox - suggesting hyperorthodoxy causes burn out. I might even amend yours a bit: Became a catechumen on Sunday, Monday morning sends out applications to every seminary to become a priest.

I know someone who within a month of becoming a catechumen started researching seminaries.

Doesn't make sense. There are a million reasons why someone can be last in line.
See, there is this thing call humor...  ;)

Humour not humor.
You crazy Europeans throwing in "U"s at random locations.  Here in the most powerful country in the world that saved you all from almost certain extinction from Nazis and Communists, we look with contempt at the letter "U".  ;D


They didn't throw them in, Noah Webster (note the lack of U's in his name!)  threw them out.  Along with a host of other things. 

Thankfully some of his ideas did NOT 'stick' .

We have a former parishioner, who left our OCA parish, then was driving over an hour to attending HOCNA parish and is now agnostic.  Sad.

More or less. I am getting over it however....I just should not have been so vigilant against the allure of asking my bishop if I can be a married monastic.

Certainly not! "Cafe" is a French(Frankish/Norman) word and therefore a sign that those splitters are secretly under the guidance of the same papal-imperialist Illuminati Freemasons who stamped out the holy Old Colorist faith of both the British Isles and Southern Italy. Notice also the use of the Latin "E" instead of the holy Greek "Epsilon". For further information please read Met. Pseudonymos' (ETOCGANAASHCOC) "Why the Latin Alphabet is a Heretical Innovation and French the Language of the Damned".

"Caught smuggling drugs.  It turned out that it was incense."

This would read better.  You could even get rid of the first "it" in the second phrase to go along with beginning the first phrase with a verb.

I remember once listening to a couple of young American natives making fun of a Sri Lankin student for speaking accented — only slightly accented — English. "Done come hir if yu cain't spake Anglish," one said. I resisted the urge to point out that our mutual acquaintance not only spoke English more eloquently than the natives, but he spoke at least two other languages as well, something the other fellows could not boast. I wish I hadn't.

On the other hand, it might not be a bad idea to teach regional dialectal and colloquial variants to someone learning the language. I recently had a conversation with a co-worker about southern Louisianaian culture that we had to turn around and translate for a third member of the conversation who was from upstate New York.

This is too often true. My German neighbor offered to teach me German if I would teach her English. I pointed out that she already spoke better English than I did. That was very disappointing for her, so I offered to teach her bad English instead. It was a deal.
I remember once listening to a couple of young American natives making fun of a Sri Lankin student for speaking accented — only slightly accented — English. "Done come hir if yu cain't spake Anglish," one said. I resisted the urge to point out that our mutual acquaintance not only spoke English more eloquently than the natives, but he spoke at least two other languages as well, something the other fellows could not boast. I wish I hadn't.

On the other hand, it might not be a bad idea to teach regional dialectal and colloquial variants to someone learning the language. I recently had a conversation with a co-worker about southern Louisianaian culture that we had to turn around and translate for a third member of the conversation who was from upstate New York.

TESL students are taught regional dialects and are expected to understand them on their comprehensive college entrance exams.

"Shuns politics"

"Pines for the return of a monarchy"

I'm guilty as charged. But then again, I don't really consider the Kingdom of Heaven a political kingdom.  ;)

Half of the threads you start is about your celebrity idol who was quite earthly monarch.

Your response is grammatically and factually incorrect. It is also a gross misrepresentation of my beliefs. You may not be able to help the grammar, but your blatant mischaracterizations of my faith are inexcusable.

Psalm 149:3 Let them praise His name with the dance;
Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. (2 Cor 2:6)
