Does anyone know the specific English text where St. Seraphim's quote, Acquire the spirit of peace and a thousand souls around you shall be saved. may be found? Also, the location of the original Russian text? I would like to translate to English (for myself) the exact, original Russian text. It seems that there are varying translations and interpretations of this quote.

Dear Norman,

 

I thought I was going to find it in his discourse, "On the Acquisition of the Holy Spirit", but it doesn't seem like it is there.  Here is the link in any case to one translation:

The Russia text of St Seraphim's conversation with N A Motovilov may be found here:

Although about the acquisition of the grace of the Holy Spirit, the precise saying, 'Acquire spirit of peace and thousands around you will be saved' , does not appear, I think, in the text but as mentioned in the thread given at post #3.
