St. Seraphim of Sarov: Acquire the Spirit of Peace

“My joy, I beg you, acquire the Spirit of Peace. That means to bring oneself to such a state that our spirit will not be disturbed by anything. For one must go through many sorrows to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. This is the way all righteous men were saved and inherited the Heavenly Kingdom….”

—St. Seraphim of Sarov, from his conversation with N. Motovilov
