After the Fatigue

'The metaphor of the cell 
brings to mind the idea 
of a retreat
in which the soul can renew its strength 
after the fatigue of the active life, 
where it can leave aside visible things 
to think about those that are invisible, 
and where it finally finds peace, 
far from external distractions…'

J.M. Perrin OP., 
from Catherine of Siena, 
Newman Press, 1965
