“I spent 3 days there in total silence, I disconnected the internet, I disconnected from the telephone, I read a lot, I discussed with the brothers who were there, they are monks Cistercians and it is fascinating. We talked about love, we talked about Jesus, we talked about the Bible, we talked about religion and that made me feel good. Really. I needed this, and will be going back next year and will be back again. "

During Elijah's response the host compared him, not without humor, to Justin Bieber who is now known for his statements around the faith.

“You are the Justin Bieber of humor! "
