“Our wise old church...has discovered that if you will act as if you believed belief will be given to you; if you pray with doubt, but pray with sincerity, your doubt will be dispelled; if you will surrender yourself to the beauty of that liturgy the power of which over the human spirit has been proved by the experience of the ages, peace will descend upon you.”
― W. Somerset Maugham, The Razor's Edge

“I used to listen to the monks repeating the Lord's Prayer; I wondered how they could continue to pray without misgiving to their heavenly father to give them their daily bread. Do children beseech their earthly father to give them sustenance? They expect him to do it, they neither feel gratitude to him for doing so nor need to, and we have only blame for a man who brings children into the world that he can't or won't provide for. It seemed to me that if an omnipotent creator was not prepared to provide for his creatures with the necessities, material and spiritual, of existence he'd have done better not to create them.”
― W. Somerset Maugham, The Razor's Edge

"The Razors Edge" was both a novel and a great movie. The new version of the movie was 1984, starred Bill Murray. A serious role he played well.

What did you do that he had to yell at you? 99% of the time it's the bitchers fault for what they were bitched out about. I'll bet you're a woman too because 99% of the time it's a woman bitching because they were corrected in front of others and embarrassed.

Factoid...I'm a dad and I was watching my kid practice for a xmas show at precious st joes gym from st vincent daycare with the classmates and he lost it like a frickin loon. Very rude. Guess there was "no room at the inn" that afternoon. Just a fact...wasn't trying to offend you...it happened. Just a hunch tho...but I don't think he's the holy roller he claims to be as a priest. Its clergy like that that makes you walk away from the church.

doesn'tbother mein the least. I don't blame yoju for being upset. Most of our local clergy are holdovers from Trautman, including the new bishop. Not to worry. Francis is cleaning house. It will take awhile.

The Church is full of hypocrites but we always have room for one more - should I put you down for that extra spot? As a side note I'm not one of Fr Larry's groupies or fans. The fact is that all priests are humans and all humans are a-holes at times. But we seem to hold other's to a higher standard than we hold ourselves to---think about it.

You are a creepy old loser who lives in his mothers basement. You've been rotting there for as long as I've been alive. I don't think you should be posting your ignorant opinions about anything. The only thing you are qualified to talk about is field stone VS cinderblock debate for cellar walls.

So stating what actually happened makes me a hypocrite? Or truly stating that the golden boy larry richards was a total jerk to a bunch of little kids makes me a hypocrite? Hypocrite to what the truth? I never said anything to him personally so I turned the other cheek...BUT...I can state the truth without being a hypocrite?
