Oh beloved Julian

From Julian of Norwich, The Showings (translated by Mirabai Starr)

“But in the depths of your darkest despair your Beloved calls to you: “Look”, he says, and opens the fathomless beautiful wound of his heart so that you can peer inside. All creation is nestled there, bathed in beauty. “Do you see any sin here?” he asks. “do you detect a shred of retribution?” You do not. All you perceive, from horizon to endless horizon, is love. As far as your eye can see there stretches a line of joyous children being welcomed home.”
