Absorbed In God Alone

Above everything else St. Francis desired "to be gone and to be with Christ" (Ph 1:23). That was why he was so concerned with freeing himself from every worldly care: lest his peace of mind be disturbed by the taint of what was mere dust. He made himself insensible to external noise and controlled his external senses and desires so that he could live absorbed in God alone.

Celano, First Life
