Julian

I set my eyes on the same cross that had comforted me before. I set my tongue to speak of Christ’s Passion and to recite the creed. I set my heart on God with all my trust and with all my might. It is God’s will that I should see myself as bound to him in love as if all that he has done he has done for me alone. And so should every soul think inwardly of its lover. He wills that our hearts should be lifted high above the depths of earthly and vain sorrows, and rejoice in him. He loves us and enjoys us, and so he wills that we love him and enjoy him, and firmly trust him; and all shall be well.

~~Julian of Norwich
