Enttäuschung und Hoffnung

Hallo - Ich lese "Showings of Julian of Norwich: A New Translation (English Edition)" von Mirabai Starr und wollte dieses Zitat mit dir teilen.

"As I beheld this, I understood that the passion of Christ encompasses all the pain that ever was or ever shall be, and that his was the worst pain of all—even greater than the greatest pain. I saw all this suffering in a fleeting glance, which quickly turned into comfort. For our beloved Lord does not want to terrorize us with this ugly sight.


But the truth is, I did not see any sin. I believe that sin has no substance, not a particle of being, and cannot be detected at all except by the pain it causes. It is only the pain that has substance, for a while, and it serves to purify us and make us know ourselves and ask for mercy.
The passion of our Lord gives us comfort against all this. That is his blessed will. The tender love that our Beloved has for us moves him to console us swiftly and sweetly.
What this means is, It is true that sin causes all this pain, but all will be well, and all will be well, and every kind of thing shall be well.
