Julian of Norwich was an anchoress (a hermit) living in a small room attached to St Julian’s Church in Norwich in the late 14th and early 15th Centuries.
During a long illness, Julian experienced a series of visions of the Passion of Christ and the love of God. She wrote these in her book The Revelations of Divine Love.
Her life of prayer and contemplation and her deep spiritual insight still inspire people today.
At The Minster, ‘Julian Meeting’ meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 11am, for half-an-hour of silent prayer. Someone introduces this with a short scripture passage or other writing. Praying together in silence in this way can be challenging; it is always deeply rewarding.
Do join us – you would be very welcome.
“In this endless love we are led and looked after by God and never shall be lost. For he wills that we should know our souls to be alive and that this life – through his goodness and grace – shall continue in heaven without end; loving him, thanking him and praising him.”
