ALL SHALL BE WELL
Sterling Silver Bracelet


The famous prayer of Julian of Norwich "All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well" stamped onto a silver bracelet. Considered one of the greatest English mystics, she lived as a hermit in the 14th century and was probably a Benedictine nun. Circular shape is 2-3/4" in diameter; band is 1/4" wide. Sterling silver, 1/2 ounce, made in USA. Includes attractive gift box and info card.

Julian of Norwich

Julian of Norwich (ca. 8 November 1342 – ca. 1416) was an English anchoress who is regarded as one of the most important Christian mystics. Julian spent much of her life as an anchorite, that is, as a vowed religious living by herself in a small room attached to the parish church of St. Julian. Beyond this, little is actually known about Dame Julian, as she was called. She is venerated in the Anglican and Lutheran churches, but has never been canonized, or officially beatified, by the Catholic Church, probably because so little is known of her life aside from her writings. There is also scholarly debate as to whether Julian was a nun in a nearby convent, or even a laywoman. Even her name is uncertain, the name "Julian" coming from the church to which her cell was attached.

At the age of 30 and a half, suffering from a severe illness and believing she was on her deathbed, Julian had a series of intense visions of Jesus Christ. They ended by the time she recovered from her illness on 13 May 1373. She was at home during her near death experience, and gives no mention of her personal life up until that point. Julian wrote down a narration of the visions immediately following them; twenty to thirty years later she wrote a theological exploration of the meaning of the visions, which are the source of her major work, called Sixteen Revelations of Divine Love (ca. 1393). This is believed to be the first book written in the English language by a woman. Julian became well known throughout England as a spiritual authority: the English mystic (and author of the first known autobiography written in England) Margery Kempe mentions going to Norwich to speak with her.

Julian's writings are noted for their spiritual depth and theological courage, for their literary elegance and the spirit of joy and humility that permeates them. In a medieval church which emphasized God's condemning wrath, Julian wrote, 'There is no wrath in God….It is the most impossible thing that can be that God would be angry, for wrath and friendship are two opposites.' Just as striking is Julian's perception of the feminine element in God. 'As truly as God is our Father,' Julian wrote, 'so truly God is our Mother.' Unparalleled in English religious literature, her Revelations spans the most profound mysteries of the Christian faith—such as the problems of predestination, the foreknowledge of God, and the existence of evil. The clarity and depth of her perception, the precision and accuracy of her theological presentation, and the sincerity and beauty of her expression reveal a mind and personality of exceptional strength and charm.

This silver bracelet, with the above words attributed to Julian of Norwich, is a real gem. I gave it to my wife. She absolutely loved it. Monastery Greetings provides a great service. The item arrived well before I expected it.

This bracelet is a heavy sterling silver circlet. The message is deeply stamped in a Celtic Uncial font - most attractive. I bought the bracelet to give me strength and courage in these trying times and its positive message really helps me. A lovely piece!

Although my order was backordered, it still arrived fairly promptly. The bracelet is beautiful--simple and elegant, befitting the words of Julian. I still can't believe that I could purchase such a thing, engraved with my favorite quotation from a medieval mystic: there's a niche item if there ever was one.

I purchased this bracelet to give as an xmas gift for one of my colleagues. Although I have not given it to her yet, I'm sure she'll be pleased. It would be great if you had very a version of the bracelet with a wider width for males. I would definitely purchase one for myself as it is one of my favorite mantras that I use during challenging times.
