This is the second book by Julian I've purchased.
The Gift Of Julian Of Norwich by Karen Manton and Lynne Muir has stunning illustrations and is perhaps worth the price just for those but contains more comments by Karen Manton than verses by Julian. It also gives the Middle English with modern translation. I wish the illustrator, Lynne Muir, had collaborated with the editor of this volume. Sure the artwork would have doubled the price of this book but I would be glad to pay it.
Every day you read a short excerpt from the writings of Saint Julian of Norwich. She is the first woman to be published in the English language. She grew up during the time of the Black Plague in England (1300s). She prayed and asked God to make her sick so that she could better understand the suffering of Jesus and other spiritual matters. She did, in fact, become ill to the point of death and experienced several visions she calls "Showings". She spent the rest of her life praying and asking God to help her understand what these visions meant.
One radical insight God gave Julian is that He is not only like a wonderful Father but He is also like a wonderful Mother. Here is a summary of her insights of God as Mother; it is also representative of all of her understandings:
GOD IS OUR TRUE MOTHER
God made us; suffering through Jesus so that we would be born again.
God educates us through Jesus, feeding us the priceless food of eternal life.
God suffers when we do, accompanying us on our journey, allowing us to fall and learn the hard way for our benefit.
God works for our good in lovely deeds and tender service forever and ever.
God would never allow one of her children to perish and She makes us certain of eternal happiness.
SO, when you are afraid, run to your Mother as fast as you can and cry out for help. In this life there is no higher state than childhood with its weakness and helplessness and ignorance. Even if you don't feel immediate relief, God wants you to trust in Her wisdom, that it is beneficial that you mourn and weep for this short time.
BUT then, you yourself shall see that ALL WILL BE WELL, that every manner of thing will be well.
