Normal people in RM just don't refer to their confessors ("duhovnic" word not widely used in actual speech) as "spiritual fathers" ("Parinte duhovnicesc" never used in actual speech as it would sound pedantic in the extreme); they'll call them "popa" (most often), "parinte" or "domn' parinte". Believe me I never heard someone in flesh and blood talk of "parintele duhovnicesc". i now, of course, know of a loony younger, monkabee priest back in my home diocese that I guess through contact with Athos and whatnot, introduced previously unknown practices there (like 1 hour confessions, "life confessions", asking for blessings to go here and there, take a shower, soon to take a

He has a small following of mostly socially awkward and inept young people and middle aged, semi-educated ladies, but man, all clergy in the diocese make fun of him, and the bishop "persecutes" him too. So, it's not normal there. But perhaps it's normal elsewhere. Who knows.
