Still be Holy

A High Priest who finds a dead person is obliged to bury him and so he defiles himself for this dead person. However, even though he becomes impure, he is still the High Priest. The High Priest does not stop being a high priest for one second.
Rebbe Nachman asks, “What do you think I would do if I did the most awful thing?” He answers, “Do you think I’d stop being what I am? I’d still be the same thing. For five minutes I’d cry for what I did wrong, but that’s it.”

You know, the question is: Are you that holy that you can even stop being holy and yet still be holy? If there is such a word. I don’t exactly know how to explain it. I don’t have the right words.

Joke of the day

A young man learning in Yeshiva is engaged to a wonderful young lady from wealthy home. The father is upset. How is this guy going to make a living? So he takes him into his office to interview him while the mother and the future bride wait nervously outside. The father says, “How do you intend to make a living?” “G-d will provide,” answers the young man. “Well, my daughter’s needs are great; she was brought up that way.” “G-d will provide,” comes the reply. “How about a house? She needs a big house.” “G-d will provide.””How about clothes? She’s used to expensive, elegant dressing.” “G-d will provide.” The father comes out of the interview and the mother and daughter anxiously inquire, “So what do you think?” “Why, he’s a very fine young man. He thinks I’m G-d!”
