In these reflections for Lent, Kathleen Murphy unravels the stories of the women who accompanied Jesus during the last days and were there when he endured agony and death on the cross. Who were these women and what are their stories? Is there anything we can learn from their sufferings and hopes that might help us with our own burdens - own crosses? Kathleen Murphy's reflections on the women of the passion are readable, thoughtful, helpful, and impeccably researched. They show that we can know quite a lot about these women, some named - such as Mary Magdalene and Mary the Mother of Jesus - but many unnamed, and that each has much to share. Each chapter ends with some heart-searching questions for the reader, which will help us to open up in faith to experience the healing, mercy, and compassion of Christ - the knowledge of the risen Jesus and the joy of Easter.
