Julian of Norwich's (1342 - 1416) Revelations of Divine Love, breathes new life into the fourteenth-century and revealing afresh its wisdom and insights for readers today. At the age of thirty, suffering a severe illness and believing she was on her
deathbed, Julian, had a series of intense visions of Jesus. She recovered and wrote down what she had seen and heard. Later in her life, she expanded on them and so created the first book to be written in English by a woman.
Her messages remains one
we urgently need to hear today:
* that there is a tender, feminine aspexct to the Divine
* that our failings are an opportunity to learn and grow
* that the nature of God's love is compassion and courtesy
Julian's faith and hope
lift us to a place where we can affirm with her that despite appearances to the contrary, 'All will be well and all will be well and every kind of thing shall be well.'
