The Essence of Eldership

From the book Elder Ambrose of Optina, by Fr Sergius Chetverikov:
It is remarkable that not long before his repose, Fr Macarius foretold to Fr Ambrose his future activity, saying: "You will live in the cell on that side of the gate, and see to it – this is my commandment to you – do not let anyone who comes here leave without consolation."
