The Archdiocese of Baltimore, to which Fr. Nick and St. Bernadette's belong, obviously applauds his style of outreach. Certainly he doesn't put his light under a bushel. For example, he posts an Easter Homily that serves as a bold challenge to the dangers, so rampant today, of Jansenism:
"Now you can admit your faults and not hide them. You can face who you are, because God says its okay. God is no longer our police. We can make mistakes, because that's how we learn when God is in our middle. This is freedom. God has come to set you free! You are now free to be yourself. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Free to act according to your deepest DNA!"
There was a time when a priest was encouraged to keep his DNA to himself.
