Being serious, religion and faith have always interested me, as I'd really like to know what gives people the trust they have in their God. In someways, I might even be a bit envious
I'm fascinated by the religious beliefs, and the reasons for them.

So I started a semi funny chat about it, and persevered to bore off anyone who might disrupt it

Longis & Agnofleda sounds like one of those combination mental diseases.

St. Dodolinus had it easy, life was a doddle.

We have a Chichester here in SE PA. They pronounce it wrongly, though. I'll leave "St. Agape" to you.
