This Wednesday, we sit with the writings of the 14th century English contemplative, Julian of Norwich.
Her Revelations of Divine Love speak of the Mothering role of Christ, amidst a series of visions she experienced of a God motivated by love, not wrath:
“I it am, the Might and the Goodness of the Fatherhood;
I it am, the Wisdom of the Motherhood;
I it am, the Light and the Grace that is all blessed Love:
I it am, the Trinity, I it am, the Unity:
I am the sovereign Goodness of all manner of things.
I am that maketh thee to love:
I am that maketh thee to long:
I it am, the endless fulfilling of all true desires.”
– Julian of Norwich, “Showing” # 60
