The 14th-century English mystic known as Julian of Norwich chose a life of voluntary “lockdown.” She lived in an enclosed cell attached to her local church during a time of medieval plague that resembles the current Covid-19 pandemic. She experienced visions she committed to writing. Her visions and insights offer contemporary seekers reason for hope even in our troubled times. She teaches us that the world is created and cherished by God who holds it in loving hands: “All shall be well.”
During prayer and reflection, retreatants will explore similarities between their own lives and that of Julian and Jesus. Participants may remain for the Sunday vigil Mass at 4 p.m. Saturday.
