"It just takes some time... all shall be well"



At the risk of making everyone except Deacon Latif Gaba think I have lost my mind, this joyful and encouraging 2002 alternative pop song "The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World reminds me of a famous quote from St. Julian of Norwich (1342-1416):

All shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well.

One of my parishioners reminds me greatly of St. Julian, praying in her tiny "anchorage" positioning her breviary around the cat on her lap.


As a postscript: a string quartet version of "The Middle" is available here.

Just to say that I really apprecite your comments over at Gene Veith's site on the Afghan war. It is good to see that there are still voices of sanity below the 49th :)

Dame Julian is very popular in Anglican/Celtic spirituality.
