40 Day Journey with Julian of Norwich: Day 5

My Journey with Julian of Norwich.

In this God brought Our Lady (Jesus’ mother, Mary) to my understanding. I saw her spiritually in her bodily likeness, a simple, humble maiden, young in years, of the stature which she had when she conceived. Also God showed me part of the wisdom and truth of her soul, and in this I understood the reverent contemplation with which she beheld her God, marvelling with great reverence that He was willing to be born of her who was a simple creature created by Him. And this wisdom and truth, this knowledge of her Creator’s greatness and of her own created littleness, made her say meekly to the angel Gabriel: Behold me here, God’s handmaiden.

Reading: Luke 1: 46-48a
