A Novena to Julian
This is the first of two short prayer resources available which resonate with Julian's writings.
A Novena is a period of prayer which takes place each day, over nine consecutive days, in preparation for a feast (e.g. Julian of Norwich, St Julian of le Mans, Pentecost), or with a special intention in mind (e.g. birthday, anniversary, medical operation or procedure, before the reception of a new companion). It may be prayed by an individual or a group.
In the Novena that you can find here, on each of these nine days, you are invited to read a selected passage from Julian of Norwich’s Reflections of Divine Love and reflect on it, then to pray the prayer which is written after that passage.
It has been prepared by Father Luke Penkett, CJN, ObJN, and Friend of Julian.
