Julian of Norwich was the first English woman to ever publish a book. It was a religious book called Revelations of Divine Love, which she wrote in 1393. She was a special kind of mystic, known as an anchoress. An anchoress detached herself from the world to live a life of prayer, contemplation, and ministry.




In you, Father all-mighty, we have our preservation and our bliss.

In you, Christ, we have our restoring and our saving.

You are our mother, brother, and Saviour.

In you, our Lord the Holy Spirit, is marvellous and plenteous grace.

You are our clothing; for love you wrap us and embrace us.

You are our maker, our lover, our keeper.

Teach us to believe that by your grace all shall be well, and all shall be well,

and all manner of things shall be well. Amen
