I don’t practice unthinking obedience to the Church (...although I do think that it's better than disobedience). I do practice thinking obedience. I believe in the holy Catholic Church. I believe that She is far wiser than me. I try to conform myself to her and hopefully to "think with the Church".

Perhaps, I' m particularly blessed. My bishop is orthodox in his teaching and in the liturgy. He's never asked me to violate my conscience. [No one in the clergy has ever asked me to do so.] He's a good shepherd ... and a lousy cop. I suspect that if he were a policeman, he might make a fine cop and a terrible shepherd. ... Who's to say?
