This podcast, starting on Palm Sunday 2022 and written and read by Paula Gooder, features nine stories about nine different, but interlinked, women, originally written as Holy Week, Easter and Ascension Day reflections for Southwark Cathedral in 2021.

Holy Week is a time when Christians across the world travel together as companions on the way in reflection and in prayer, focused on Jesus, the one whose suffering and death, whose resurrection and new life draws us together and makes us one. It is together, as God’s people, that we accompany Jesus in this last week of his life, and as we do so we join countless others who have trod this way before us. One of the powerful features of Holy Week and Easter is that our remembrance of the events in the last week of Jesus’ life joins us with those who were there with him and invites us to imagine what it might have been like to have seen the events for ourselves.
