Event description
In a world beginning to comprehend the suffering and darkness of a global pandemic and its aftermath Julian once again leads us to the light

About this event

Above, you can see our speaker in an a recent series on Julian from Canterbury. Emma writes for us, "In Julian of Norwich’s account of her ninth shewing in Revelations of Divine Love her tone changes.

"Up to this point her visions and musings have focussed on the pain and suffering of Christ on the cross. At times the graphic, imaginative rendering of her visions of the Passion have been unbearable. Now, as she continues to gaze upon the cross, the darkness of suffering lightens and Julian begins to see how Christ’s cross is a vision of salvation.

"In this retreat we will delve deeply into Julian’s text and focus on four of her shewings of divine love which have the Biblical narrative of the Passion as their basis. Together they reveal how the cross is the ultimate showing of divine love, within suffering. We will have time to ponder what Julian says, how she interprets and expresses her revelation, where her late fourteenth-century context enlightens our understanding, and allow her words to lead us to that place of prayer and encounter of God for ourselves.

"For a world beginning to comprehend the suffering and darkness of a global pandemic and its aftermath, Julian once again leads us to the light and hope of Christ through her visionary encounters of him on the cross."

Emma Pennington is Canon Missioner of Canterbury Cathedral and holds a doctorate from Oxford University on Julian of Norwich. Formerly a parish priest, area dean and spirituality adviser in the Oxford diocese, she has also been Chaplain to Worcester College, Oxford, and speaks widely on Julian of Norwich and Christian Spirituality.

At the Foot of the Cross with Julian of Norwich was published last year. This book seeks to bring to a popular readership a devotional engagement with Julian’s work. The introduction gives a general background to a meditative text which intends to lead the reader to ‘beholding’.

The commentary incorporates reflection, the biblical narrative and Julian’s subsequent teachings to create a meditation that enables the reader to linger on the wonder of the cross, ending with a prayer that leads to silence and a thought or verse to carry into daily life.
