In this series of podcasts, we will delve into the wisdom of the Christian mystics to discover how they may inspire, encourage, and guide us on our own spiritual path -- especially during this time of pandemic that produces so much fear and suffering. The first episode is entitled "Sheltering in Place" and introduces Julian of Norwich, the beloved fourteenth century anchorite who received sixteen Revelations of Divine Love and heard Christ tell her: "All shall be well, and all shall be well, and thou shalt see thyself that all manner of thing shall be well."

She is the author of "An Explorer's Guide to Julian of Norwich" (IVP Academic, 2018) and "Julian's Gospel: Illuminating the Life and Revelations of Julian of Norwich" (Orbis Books, 2013), which have won numerous awards, including a First Place Catholic Press Association Book Award and the Nautilus Gold Medal for Spirituality. Her most recent book is "Suddenly There is God: The Story of Our Lives in Sacred Scripture" (Cascade Books, 2019).
