Brother Body

Meditate as much while on this journey as if you were shut up in a hermitage or in your cell, for wherever we are, wherever we go, we carry our cell with us; brother [sister] body is our cell, and the soul is the hermit who dwells in it, there to pray to the Lord and to meditate.
Elizabeth Goudge, Saint Francis of Assisi, p.100
