Completely immersed

Be still before the LORD, all mankind, because he has roused
himself from his holy dwelling. – Zechariah 2:13

"When she (Mother Cabrini) went to the chapel...her whole attitude...revealed that she was completely immersed in the Divine Presence. 
One day, during the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, a Sister brought her a telegram. Observing that Mother made no response, the Sister put the telegram on the prie-dieu. Then, perceiving that Mother still did not move, the Sister looked into her face. She saw there a seraphic expression, the eyes openly fixed upon the Sacred Heart; but Mother was not able to see nor hear anything that was going on around her."
