Metropolitan Anthony Bloom on Stability

A quote by Anthony Bloom (+2003), Exarch of the Moscow Patriarchate in Western Europe, pops up in a number of places.  I’ve not been able to find an actual citation.  But the thought itself is worth sharing since it surely provides much support to Benedictine oblates who seek to live stability away from a monastic enclosure.  “You will find stability,” Metropolitan Bloom wrote, “at the moment when you discover that God is everywhere, that you do not need to seek him elsewhere, that He is here.”
