Living in a limited space
Of course, this isn't easy and you have to learn how to do it, especially when you haven't chosen it, unlike the nuns. It takes time to get used to this limited space. Moreover, we don't have equal opportunities in our isolated, quarantined, or lockdown living situations. However, St. Teresa can help us in her writings by showing us the importance of recollection: to choose to turn toward the interior of ourselves; to discover there the presence of God hidden in our hearts; to experience that where we are, we can live with God. God is even found in the middle of the pots and pans, as Our Holy Mother testifies! The challenge is to accept the need to master our interiority. This will be done differently depending on whether we live alone or in a restless house, but for each one, a pathway is possible!
So let's try to turn the constraints of confinement into an opportunity for growth in contemplation. We will grow through this ordeal.
