May 8 — Feast Day of Dame Julian of Norwich
“As truly as God is our Father,
so truly is God our mother.
And he revealed that in everything
and especially in these sweet words
where he says,
“I am the power and goodness of fatherhood,
I am the wisdom and lovingness of motherhood.
I am the light and grace
which is all blessed love.”
Julian of Norwich (1342-1416)
