It helps, of course, that Archbishop Sample is, and is known, to be a man of prayer and of charity. His teaching is of a piece with his praying and doing. I know he prays -- I went to seminary with him. And things come out about his charity. When he confirmed a prisoner last spring, it came out that he has regularly visited prisons throughout this priesthood. His care for his mother and his simplicity of life are easy to observe: he lives with her in the cathedral rectory. And it's not a Cathedral rectory like the one I live in!
It is this integrity -- a wholeness of life -- that we should strive for as disciples of the Lord Jesus.
