Dame Julian of Norwich

Lady Julian Of Norwich

Lady Julian Of Norwich, by Stephen Reid (1873–1948).

Lord God, who in thy compassion didst grant to the Lady Julian many revelations of thy nurturing and sustaining love: Move our hearts, like hers, to seek thee above all things, for in giving us thyself thou givest us all; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Lord God, who desirest our souls to be gladly disposed to thee: Lift us up and draw our outer disposition to our inward, and make us all at unity with thee, and each of us with others in the true, lasting joy which is Jesus; and grant us, like Dame Julian, to see in the smallest thing, even a hazelnut in the palm of our hand, that thou hast made it, that thou lovest it, and that thou keepest it; for the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
