Juliana of Norwich: how God loves us

Sunday, May 8, 2011
    Feast of Juliana of Norwich, Mystic, Teacher, c.1417
    How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
    —1 John 3:1 (NIV)
    For our soul is so specially loved of Him that is highest, that it overpasseth the knowing of all creatures: that is to say, there is no creature that is made that may [fully] know how much and how sweetly and how tenderly our Maker loveth us.
    ... Juliana of Norwich (1342?-1417), Revelations of Divine Love, Grace Harriet Warrack, ed., Methuen, 1901,, p. 14 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I cannot conceive Your love for us.
