Centered on Christ

Focusing Achieving Good Here and Now

“The promise of stability makes us realize something that is very often obscured in our fast-moving, superficial culture: stability in itself is an immense good for the human person, a real necessity for learning the deepest needs, rhythms, and vocation of the human heart.  A monk in keeping stability will be able to effect change within himself, transformation in Christ, full openness to the Holy Spirit.  If we seek satisfaction elsewhere, we are not going to work to achieve the good which can be ours here and now.”  Page 211
