Not as man sees does God see,
because man sees the appearance
but the LORD looks into the heart.

—1 Samuel 16:7

AS MUCH as some sort of official approval of my work would be desirable, neither an Imprimatur (“Let it be printed”) nor a Nihil Obstat (“Nothing [herein] stands in the way [of the faith]”) can apply to a website because a website, unlike a printed book, can be changed at any moment. Therefore, no official approval for a website would have any meaningful value because there can be no guarantee that what someone has once approved is the same thing as what an individual might be currently reading. What is approved in one moment could be completely altered in the next moment.

Still, if anyone can find a bishop who has the requisite knowledge to understand the psychological depth of my work, who has the time to read everything (!) on this website, and who would be willing to write a general statement of appreciation of my work, please tell him to send me a note!

I, for my part, knowing the Church as well as I do, will not hold my breath waiting for a bishop to make such a generous sacrifice. In fact, only after I stop breathing completely will there be any hope of my work getting examined, approved, and printed.
