A friend of mine shared a little vision of those who are trying to pursue perfection. He saw people in separate little cells in a desert country praying and becoming perfect through suffering and self-denial.
Can you see yourself in this little vision? I have written in the past about St. Catherine of Siena's making a cell in one's mind....Can you do this, not only for your own protection, but for the building of the Church?
