From numerous accounts and writings, it has been shown that true contemplatives do not seek unusual experiences, much less personal power. In her “Revelations”, Julian shows great charm in the childlike, tender quality of her expression. She sees God as one Who delights in His creation and desires that we would recognize this and participate. Julian's attitude regarding the “all shall be well” largely depends on acceptance of the limitations of our own vision and the knowledge that the vastness of divine providence is mysterious. It is well worth noting that an anchoress lacked neither time nor motivation for recording such reflections, it is a fair assumption that her understanding of the full scope of her revelations developed over many years.
Julian has remained a continual evolving manuscript for numerous individuals both of the laity, clergy and scholastic vocations.
