Stations of the Cross

In the podcasts available below, Archbishop Stephen Cottrell, Dr Paula Gooder, and Bishop Philip North delve into the 15 Biblical Stations of the Cross, a devotion tracing Jesus’s journey to the Cross. This practice has deep roots in Christian tradition, stemming from early pilgrimages in Jerusalem. The podcasts aim to offer a vivid experience of walking in Jesus’s steps, enriched by reflections and prayers. These are inspired by centuries-old traditions and the evocative artwork of Nicholas Markell, enhancing the spiritual journey through Passiontide. For a more immersive experience, listeners are encouraged to explore the powerful images associated with these stations, available here and in the book “Walking the Way of the Cross”​.

Women of Holy Week

Women of Holy Week is a series of nine stories about nine different, but interlinked, women written by Paula Gooder. Starting with Palm Sunday and finishing with Ascension Day, these nine stories imagine what it might have been like to accompany Jesus in this final week of his life from the perspective of nine women. Some of them we know with certainty were there because the Gospels tell us they were: the widow with two coins, the woman with the ointment of pure nard, Mary wife of Clopas, Mary Magdalene, Mary mother of Jesus. Some are not mentioned at all, but someone like them was probably present: a woman journeying to Jerusalem for the Passover, the wife of a scribe, and a female disciple at the Last Supper. The stories also aim to travel from the outside in: from people who had the most fleeting encounters with Jesus at the start of the week to his most devoted followers at the end.
