  1. @Tim- i think frmilan’s comment was tongue-in-cheek. we’ve all forgotten to turn off our phones at inopportune times.

  3. “This reminds me of a time serving with a bishop.
    The cell phone rings. He becomes upset with the clergy for not turning off their phones.
    We all check, they are all off.
    Oh no! Its the bishop’s cell that is ringing in his pocket.
    Never mind all is well.”

    If a bishop is holding others to a standard to which he does not hold himself, something is radically wrong. This reminds me of our Lord’s statement regarding the Pharisees who hold others to standards they won’t bother with themselves. Your seeming to give the bishop a cheerful, mindless, supposedly virtuous pass when he obviously doesn’t give a pass to others is disturbing.

  5. Not-turned-off cell phones that go off during particularly solemn moments of the Divine Liturgy– 10 days of 100 prostrations each and xerophagy.
