Julianna of Norwich—Quotes for a Sixth Sunday of Easter Homily on Mother's Day and with reference to Acts 10:44-48, 1 John 5:1-6 and John 15:9-17


On the Holy Spirit
Our Good Lord the Holy Spirit, who is endless life dwelling in our soul, keeps us most securely, works a peace in the soul, brings it to was by grace, brings it into agreement with God, and makes it obedient. (Julianna of Norwich, Revelations of Divine Love, Ch 48, 158)
Abide in my love (What the Love of Jesus is Like)
Jesus said, "See how I loved you!" It was as if he had said, "My darling, behold and see your Lord, your God, who is your maker and your endless joy! See what delight and endless bliss I have in your salvation. For my love, enjoy it now and with me" (Ibid., Ch 24, 121)
On Mother's Love
Our mother's bear us for pain and dying…But our mother, Jesus,—all love—alone bears us for joy and for endless living, blessed may He be.  (Ibid., Ch 60, 192)
