Thou art but a worm and not a man

I once went to confession to an old Russian priest who quoted from the Psalms (and rightly so,) “thou art a worm, not a man” but when I mentioned the matter to his bishop in the spirit of praise that bishop became INCENSED and said he would speak to that priest. That bishop is now Metropolitan and head of the entire “Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia,” Bishop Hilarion. He was a young bishop at the time. Everyone makes mistakes.
