our Savior is our true Mother, in whom we are endlessly borne; and we shall never come our of him.

God almighty is our kindly father; and God all-wisdom is our kindly Mother: with the love and goodness of the Holy Ghost; which is all one god, one Lord.

and in the knitting and the oneing he is our very true Spouse, and we are his loved wife and fair maiden.

–Julian of Norwich, 14 th century mystic

proof that Julian intercedes for us?  on her saint day, i found missing library materials that had been lost for lo these seven months!  glory!
