Women of the Passion - A Reflection on the Women Who Accompanied Christ to His Death

A great number of the people followed him, and among them were women who were beating their breasts and wailing for him. But Jesus turned to them and said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children... For if they do this when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?" (Luke 23:27-31)

As we follow Christ's journey in these final days before his Passion and Death on the Cross, we come across some very strong female characters in Scripture, who were not afraid to show their support for Christ. Who were these women? What are their stories? Why did they follow Christ to the Cross? In today's feature, Laura and Mary from Xt3 are joined by Qwayne from the Justice and Peace Office for the Archdiocese of Sydney, where they discuss the legacy of the incredible women of the Passion.
