Prayer request

I wasn't planning to blog today, but I'm asking you to join me in praying for the Such a Pretty Bubble blogger, whose mother died suddenly and unexpectedly on Saturday.

I am asking the intercession of Blessed Julian of Norwich to comfort Char and her family:
"What? wouldest thou wit thy Lord's meaning in this thing? Wit it well: Love was His meaning. Who sheweth it thee? Love. Wherefore sheweth He it thee? For love. Hold thee therein, thou shalt wit more in the same. But thou shalt never wit therein other without end." With this illumination, the whole mystery of Redemption and the purpose of human life became clear to her, and even the possibility of sin and the existence of evil does not trouble her, but is made "a bliss by love". This is the great deed, transcending our reason, that the Blessed Trinity shall do at the last day: "Thou shalt see thyself that all manner of thing shall be well." 
Eternal rest grant unto Char's mother, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.  May she rest in peace.  Amen.
