Two anniversaries - two women of love, peace & mercy – Including a meditative rosary
Elizabeth Ruth Obbard
This book began with a prayerful approach to the rosary, using meditations from the writings of Julian of Norwich and Therese of Lisieux. It was then expanded to give readers a more nuanced understanding of their life and message. We are celebrating the 650th anniversary of Julian’s Revelations, received in Norwich, and the 150th anniversary of the birth of St Therese of Lisieux. Here are two women who have a similar message and yet lived centuries apart. But what are a few centuries when to the Lord ‘a thousand years are but a single day’.
