"Our Lord was never wroth nor never shall be" - Julian of Norwich

'I saw truthfully that our Lord was never wroth* nor never shall be. For he is God, he is good, he is truth, he is love, he is peace. And his might, his wisdom, his charity, and his unity do not permit him to be wroth. For I saw truly that it is against the property of his might to be wroth, and against the property of his wisdom, and against the property of his goodness. God is that goodness that may not be wroth, for God is nothing but goodness.'
~ Julian of Norwich, Revelations of Divine Love

*Definition of wroth : archaic for intensely angry, highly incensed, wrathful.
