I approve.

Even when Fr. G is wrong, he is wrong in the right way.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Welcome to the Hotel California, Father!
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

You sound like a professional who knows what he's talking about.  That's because you are.
