COCFL Retreat Videos Now Available: Julian of Norwich, A Mystic for Our Times

Julian of Norwich, A Mystic for Our Times, Parts 1- 6
A New Workshop Video Series
by Patty Merlo

 In 1372, Julian received sixteen revelations centered on the Passion of Jesus.  These visions led her to a radical decision: to live her life as a hermit enclosed in a cell attached to a church in Norwich, England.  Then during twenty years of prayer and reflection, God revealed the meaning of the sixteen revelations, and she came to see that they were intended not for her alone, but for all Christians.  Today, as we face the pain and divisions of our own times, her insights can provide us with the strength, wisdom, comfort, and healing that we seek. During this reflective day, participants will explore Julian’s life and message by means of presentation, personal reflection, and conversation. 

Patty Merlo, has a Master’s degree in Pastoral Ministry from Madonna College, trained as a hospital chaplain, and has completed the Internship in Spiritual Direction and Ignatian Spirituality at Manresa Jesuit Retreat Center.  She has taught on the high school and college level, served as a DRE, and currently ministers as a spiritual director and retreat leader. 

This “live” recording was made at a one day workshop on February 9, 2019, sponsored by Contemplative Outreach of Central Florida.  COCFL.org
