James Martin, S.J. endorsing Julian’s Gospel:

Certainly one of the best books on Julian of Norwich I’ve ever read.  With a vast amount of research and a great deal of passion, Veronica Mary Rolf successfully recreates the world of the great mystic, provides careful explanations of Julian’s rich experiences in prayer, and, overall, paints a convincing portrait of one of the most remarkable women ever to have lived—and believed.


Richard Rohr, OFM, endorsing An Explorer’s Guide to Julian of Norwich by Veronica Mary Rolf

The grand and optimistic vision of Lady Julian is fully presented and profoundly supported in this excellent guide by Veronica Mary Rolf. I have been fed for many years by Julian, but this is a new and generous feeding. It can serve as a first-time introduction to this marvelous mystic or a fifth-time deeper journey.


First Place Catholic Media Association Book Award Citation for Julian's Gospel:

_Although many books on the life and spirituality of Julian of Norwich precede Rolf’s, both veteran and newly ordained seekers of the enigmatic mystic Julian will profit from this author’s mastery of the subject matter. Julian's Revelations take on a deeper personal nature and relevance when viewed through Rolf's historical, familial, and theological insights. The author deftly portrays a Julian of her time.
