“All will be well” is a mantra from Julian of Norwich, an English mystic, that T. S. Eliot invokes in Little Gidding, the fourth of the Four Quartets poems written in England during the darkest days of WWII in 1942. “We will not cease from exploration/ And the end of all our exploring/ Will be to arrive where we started/ And know the place for the first time.” are the famous lines of the poem that invokes the fire of the Spirit that came onto the church at Pentecost. As we enter the last weeks of Lent I am using the RCIA Gospel of Lazarus to contrast the “All will be well” of the Lord who knows that He will raise his friend Lazarus from the dead and the weeping Christ. Eliot enjoins us to accept our sacramental death. “A people without history/ Is not redeemed from time, for history is a pattern/ Of timeless moments.”
