Peace be with you

“It is true that sin is the cause of this suffering, but all shall be well, and all shall, and all manner of things shall be well.”

A week or so ago I posted this quote without the first part of the sentence. That is because I initially discovered it without the first part of the sentence.

Since then I have read Revelations of Divine Love written by Julian of Norwich and discovered the quote I used omitted the words ‘sin’ and ‘suffering’ and this changes the context.

“All shall be well… ,” was not said as a secular affirmation but in response to religious experience or divine revelation.

Julian of Norwich was a 14th century English Nun. As almost every man woman and child in England was at that time she was also a Catholic.

The inference of the quote is indeed that all shall be well, but it assumes that the reader is a Christian who believes in the Life, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
