Love was his Meaning: A weekend with Julian of Norwich

July 5 - July 7

Love was his Meaning

A weekend with Julian of Norwich, one of the most wonderful Christian voices.

To many, Julian of Norwich is the greatest of the English mystics.  On the 8th May 1373, after a near-fatal illness, she experienced a series of revelations or “showings” of God’s love that she would reflect on for the rest of her life.

Julian is a mystic and a theologian, but for us a warm and down-to-earth companion for the spiritual journey.  Her images of God speak to the heart.  God is full of the tender care and compassion of a mother, as well as a father.  She glimpses God holding the whole world in his hands, enfolding it in love.  Julian’s writings convey a great sense of joy and a realistic optimism that sees so much hope and promise for the human creature.  She helps us see ourselves through the eyes of God.

In this weekend, through talks, prayer and reflection we hope, with the help of Julian, to come to a better understanding of God and of ourselves embraced by his love.
