Revelations of Divine Love

A few weeks ago I watched a tv programme about the very first book ever written in English by a woman. It’s called  Revelations of Divine Love written by the 14th century mystic Mother Julian of Norwich. Her fame as a spiritual counsellor was widespread but her writing is probably best known today for the comforting words she heard from God during one of her revelations when she asked about the existence of sin.
The answer she was given was “Sin is inevitable but all shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well”

Let us Pray.

Dear Lord,
as we try and often struggle with our Lenten resolutions,
help us to remember that you are always there to support us
and that you love us in spite of our failings.
Amen.
