My goodness. Why make such a negative assumption? I thought he meant this as a precaution in case he forgot to turn it off. Seems like a very wise idea to me.
my spiritual director keeps his on b/c he never knows when an emergency might arise. if it's during my hour-long confession/direction appointment, he'll attend to whatever once we're done. he's afraid if he turns it off, he'll leave it off, and no one will find him.
And we survived how? before cellphones?
