7.12

Julian of Norwich was a 14th century English theologian who longed to grow closer God—and did this by becoming an anchoress. This meant that she withdrew from the secular world in order to lead a life wholly oriented towards Christ and prayer.

One of her most famous quotes comes from what is most easily thought of as a ‘near death experience.’ She writes:

“But Jesus, who in this vision informed me of all that is needed by me, answered with these words and said: ‘It was necessary that there should be sin; but all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.

This is a quote that has brought me great comfort. I hope it can do the same for others.
