When the soul is naughted and transformed, then of herself
she neither works nor speaks nor wills, nor feels nor hears
nor understands; neither has she of herself the feeling
of outward or inward, where she may move.
And in all things it is God who rules and guides her,
without the meditation of any creature. And she is
so full of peace that thought she pressed her flesh,
her nerves, her bones, no other thing come forth
from them than peace.
St. Catherine of Genoa
