JuliaN of Norwich

Julian of Norwich was a 14'th century mystic and and writer. She was an "anchorite" - which was kind of like a hermit / nun. Anchorites typically lived in self-imposed imprisonment in rooms attached to churches where their devotion and sacrifice would bring divine revelation and salvation. Julian of Norwich was the author of the first book written by a woman in English. 

In her book "Revelations on Divine Love" she writes,

“But Jesus, who in this vision informed me of all that is needed by me, answered with these words and said: ‘It was necessary that there should be sin; but all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.'
