The Showings of Julian of Norwich, review!!!

Such a wonderful read! I shared this once before, but I finished it a couple weeks ago, so I wanted to share it again! The Showings of Julian of Norwich is a collection of the sixteen visions of Christ a young woman received on her deathbed. Miraculously she survived her illness and spent the remainder of her life in a convent writing the visions down. We do not know her real name as she kept herself out of her writings almost completely. We only call her Julian of Norwich because she is associated that way with St. Julian’s church in Norwich, England.
I think these showings could easily be a study or a meditation. There was so much articulated, and because they are so otherworldly, each chapter deserves much thought and prayerful contemplation.
