"Christ in the Soul"
Play • 58 min

In the Sixteenth and final Revelation, Julian of Norwich is gifted with an inner vision of Christ sitting in rest in her soul as in a vast citadel. He is "sovereign might, sovereign wisdom, and sovereign goodness." She understands that the soul is where God delights in dwelling, as his "homeliest home." Julian also hears the final locution -- or inner words -- spoken by Christ within her soul. These words assure her that “it was no raving that thou saw this day” during all her Revelations (which she had, for a brief moment doubted). She is assured by Christ of the truth of her Revelations. She is commanded to "take it and believe it, and keep thee therein, and comfort thee therewith, and trust thee thereto, and thou shalt not be overcome.” This is a most magnificent Revelation, full of encouragement and reassurance for us all. And rest assured, this is not the end of Julian's writings. There is so much more of her reflections on the meaning of her Revelations still to come. Please share these Life, Love, & Light podcasts with your family and friends who may be in need of encouragement and hope right now. Blessings to all!
