A Catholic can't help but scrutinize her reasons for converting, and the importance of the Divine Liturgy in the process.
Fr. Giertych has already been down to TAC. He will be in Berkeley next Tuesday. As my car is in the shop, I do not know if I will be able to attend, but I will post the video if it becomes available.

Online Etymological Dictionary:

O.E. upriht, from up "up" + riht "right." Similar compounds are found in other Germanic languages (cf. O.Fris. upriucht, M.Du. oprecht, O.H.G. ufreht, Ger. aufrecht, O.N. uprettr). Figurative sense of "good, honest" is first attested 1520s. The noun in the sense of "something standing erect" is from 1742. 

Another link between "straight" [right] and being morally good? The erect position is proper to man, not only because he is a biped but a quadruped, but the natural posture is what is healthy for him as well?
