if a holy man were holy....

If a holy man were holy, would he think of himself as holy?

It seems unlikely since thinking of himself as holy would smack rather of arrogance than holiness.

And if a holy man did not think of himself as holy, by what fiat would others be correct in ascribing holiness to him?

What a peculiar matter.

Utterly frivolous and yet serious too since individuals can contort their lives in countless ways in the search for a holy -- not always religious -- home.
