Bishop's Reference to AT

In what appears to be an undated column in the Catholic Explorer (the official newspaper of the Diocese of Joliet, IL), Bishop J. Peter Sartain, writes about the theme "Surrender to God."

In defining what people can mean by the word surrender, he includes this: "
Similarly, “to surrender” can connote a variety of things: To stop fighting because we are unable to win. To give up possession of something—“He surrendered his wallet to the thief.” To let go of an idea or desire—“They surrendered the notion that they would ever hike the Appalachian Trail. ....”

That Trail sneaks in everywhere. I wonder if the good bishop is a hiker.
