      Oh jeeze for missed opportunity. I can't rhyme. Seriously. I'm terrible

      to make rhyming couplets.)

      But I eagerly await the efforts of my fellow Mythies. :-)


      (And to clarify, St. Augustine *is* a saint in the Orthodox Church --
      for his
      example of true repentance and great love of God. But he most definitely
      considered a theologian.)
