Today is the feast day of Julian of Norwich.
She was a 14th Century Christian anchoress and mystic who had visions of Jesus Christ as she was receiving the last rites, and who wrote of her revelations in a book called Revelations of Divine Love. Not much is known of her life, except that she lived a life of solitary contemplation and prayer in the aftermath of the Black Death; we don’t even know her proper name.
These words are attributed to her, and I draw comfort from them when things feel out of control, or that they are not going in a direction I am comfortable with. In our Lord, indeed, all will be well.
All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be wellJulian of Norwich
