Listen to an interview with Fr. Richard
In conversation with comedian Pete Holmes, Richard Rohr said, "Every time you set up an expectation in your mind, it's a resentment waiting to happen." Quoting Jim Carrey, Pete responds: "'I wish everybody could have all their dreams come true so they could realize that's not the answer.' ... I used to think rich people can't get to heaven because they're evil. But now I think attached people can't get to enlightenment because they're holding onto their bidet."
