This! Ten thousand times, this!

You don't have to live like they tell you.

But that's not freedom! I'm surprised that you, who I think love the Benedictine way, would fall for this. I don't want to be unkind because at first blush this young man seems to have found something we all yearn for…but where did he get the money for the SUV? and the tractor? and the log saw etc.? I guess he saved up - good. Where did he get the land? Where is his wife, and his children? What does he do for Mass?

At the risk of lecturing you, may I say that freedom is inside not outside? We are in the Presence of God no matter where we are, and no matter the noise of the highway. What would happen if we all took off and moved in right next to this young dreamer? He'd move!!

Besides freedom is not true freedom unless it's the freedom to worship God in the way He designed for us to do that.

I hope I don't come off as being churlish or uncharitable but this video is not a demonstration of freedom, it's a demonstration of a selfish young hippie doing his thing.
