Julian of Norwich (1342-1416) is internationally famous for her Revelations of Divine Love, establishing her as one of the most creative theologians, spiritual writers and mystics in the Christian tradition. "All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well."

God's Reluctance - Julian of Norwich "Pray inwardly, even if you do not enjoy it. Yes, even though you think you are doing nothing." "Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance. It is laying hold of His willingness.

Pray, even if you feel nothing, see nothing. For when you are dry, empty, sick or weak, at such a time is your prayer most pleasing to God, even though you may find little joy in it. This is true of all believing prayer. - Julian of Norwich

When we, by the working of mercy and grace, be made meek and mild, we are fully safe; suddenly is the soul oned to God when it is truly peaced in itself: for in Him is found no wrath. - Julian of Norwich

Very little is known about Mother Julian of Norwich (d.1442). Not even her name is left to us, and she is called after the church of St Julian in Norwich, where she lived as an 'anchoress' walled up in a small room attached to the church. She belongs to a great flowering of medieval English mysticism but unlike the Rhineland mystics, Julian and the other English mystics did not live in a religious community, and Julian lived a hermit's life (albeit with a cat).
