It's Blessed Julian's Day

.... the anniversary of the day she saw her "Showings" in her anchor hold at Norwich. One tiny taste of this foremother of mine:

To consider the sins of other people will produce a thick film over the eyes of our soul, and prevent us for the time being from seeing the "fair beauty of the Lord" --- unless, that is, we look at them contrite along with the sinner, being sorry with and for him, and yearning over him for God. Without this it can only harm, disturb, and hinder the soul who considers them.
