Which Trad Priest do I Believe?

Try to figure out if there's a special occasion (time, place etc.) in which you fall more easily. Then avoid that occasion. St. Alphonsus:
Quote:With regard to those who have had a habit of impurity, it will not be sufficient to avoid proximate occasions; if they do not fly from remote occasions, they will very easily relapse into their former sins.
...
St. Philip Neri used to say, that in the war against the vice of impurity, the victory is gained by cowards that is, by those who fly from the occasions of this sin. But the man who exposes himself to it, arms his flesh, and renders it so powerful, that it will be morally impossible for him to resist its attacks.
A drunkard shouldn't be sitting in a pub fighting the urge to drink. It is better to walk past the pub without entering. But it is still better to take a different path that doesn't even require him to walk past the pub. The point is, the greater the distance from the occasion, the safer we are. And "distance" doesn't have to mean physical distance, of course.

Some of us are tempted to impurity immediately after waking up in the morning. Then we need to get up immediately and say three Hail Marys.

Agreed. 
If Matas had said the above regarding the current avatar, I think I would have agreed with him. In fact, it would probably would have been an understatement.

I think this is all very humorous.

I think you’re serious, but I’m not sure.

I can't tell which of you are serious.

I know. There’s just a striking resemblance.

So you weren't being serious?  Seriously?
