40 Day Journey with Julian of Norwich: Day 2

Lenten Book Group 2022 | by The Friends of Julian of Norwich

Prayer material and guided prayer.

[At the point of death, Julian is gazing at a crucifix]. And at this, suddenly I saw the red blood running down from under the crown, hot and flowing freely and copiously, a living stream, just as it was at the time when the crown of thorns was pressed on His blessed head. I perceived, truly and powerfully, that is was He who just so, both God and man, himself suffered for me, who showed it to me without intermediary. And…suddenly the Trinity filled my heart full of the greatest joy, and I understood that it will be so in heaven without end to all who will come there. For the Trinity is God, God is the Trinity. The Trinity is our maker, the Trinity is our protector, the Trinity is our everlasting lover, the Trinity is our endless joy and our bliss, by our Lord Jesus Christ, and in our Lord Jesus Christ. And this was revealed in the first vision and in them all, for where Jesus appears the blessed Trinity is understood…The most important point to apprehend in His Passion is to meditate and come to see that He who suffered is God.

A suggestion was made during our introductory and orientation session that for some people, journaling might not be the best way to review their prayer. I commented that Praying in Colour might be a good alternative – it is what I intend to do. I have written about it before and if you would like to read more about it, you can find that information here.
