Hemmed in on all sides...

Public events have led you to prefer a voluntary confinement, which is worse perhaps, because of the circumstances, than the confinement of a prison. You've suffered an eclipse of your personality... On all sides you feel yourself hemmed in: selfishness, curiosity, misunderstanding, gossip. Well, so what? Have you forgotten your very free will and that power of yours as a "child"? The absence of leaves and flowers (of external action) does not exclude the growth and activity of the roots (interior life)... Work: things will change and you'll yield more fruit than before--and it will be more savory. St. Josemaria
