Purls of Wisdom

In honor of Dame Julian of Norwich, the 14th century saint whose feast day is today, some purls from her beloved work...

Before God made us God loved us, and when we were made we loved God... And thus is our soul made by God and at the same point knitted to God... And that is the reason why there can and will be absolutely nothing between God and our soul... Furthermore, God wills that we realize that all souls which shall be saved in heaven without end are knitted in this knot, are made one in this joining, and are made holy in this holiness.  Revelations of Divine Love, chapter 53
