Broadcasts on Radio Winchcombe in Lent  
Julian of Norwich, also known  Juliana, was born in 1342 in Norwich and is regarded as a celebrated mystic.  Her Revelations of Divine Love (or Showings) which are considered one of our most remarkable Christian documents.  

On May 13, 1373, Julian was healed of a serious illness after experiencing a series of visions of Christ’s suffering and of the Blessed Virgin. Her Revelations spans the most profound mysteries of the Christian faith—such as the problems of predestination, the foreknowledge of God, and the existence of evil.   She remained humble throughout her life but was driven to tell her story:

“God forbid that you should say or assume that I am a teacher, for that is not what I mean, nor did I ever mean it; for I am a woman, ignorant and frail … Just because I am a woman, must I therefore believe that I must not tell you about the goodness of God, when I saw at the same time both his goodness and his wish that it should be known?”
