Commentary on the Gospel of

Bible Diary - CMF

 

Julian of Norwich comments:  “When our soul is breathed into our body, bringing our senses to life, then mercy and grace immediately begin to work, caring for us, and protecting us with pity and love.  At the same time the Holy spirit takes our faith and in it forms the hope that when we have grown and become mature in the Holy Spirit, we shall return to our essential being above; to the powerful goodness of Christ.  In this way, I understood that our physical nature is grounded in God’s nature, mercy, and grace—a grounding which enables us to receive gifts that lead us on to eternal life.  I saw with absolute certainty that our being is in God.  What is more, I saw that God is in our physical nature, too.  From the beginning of time God ordained that the moment we became physical beings, at that same moment we would become the city of God.”
