QuotationThe book on Staretz Sylvan by Archimandrite Sophrony [The Undistorted Image, London, 1958]-monk of Athos now in England, has a small community at Maldon in Essex. I wrote to him about his book and then Friday I found we already had it in the library. This is remarkable. We really have good librarians now!! (Esp. Fr. Sylvanus. No doubt this explains it.)
