Getting up early is not a problem, but he does his confessions early before liturgy, that is the only time I get to speak to him.
As for manastaries, there are none near me here in South Africa. They have just started with one, and there is one novice, and even he has no Spiritual Father yet. I think he is seeing a priest under the Metropolitan, which is Greek (Patriachate of Alexandria).
As I'm Russian ROC-MP, I don't want to go across juristictional lines, even though we share the same Metropolitan.
It's really quite a difficult situation, and I have to frequently turn to the 'net'. There are some Boards that have priests who answer questions placed there on a personal basis, but it's still not one-on-one.
I'm praying for guidance and a solution.
