“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.
