Holy Week | Episode 12

At the Foot of the Cross
Holy Week | Episode 12

Holy Week is a very sacred time for us as we follow Christ from his triumphant entrance into Jerusalem to the foot of the Cross – the name of this very podcast – as sorrowful bystanders to His Passion. On Easter Sunday, we roll back the stone of the empty tomb and share in the joy of the Resurrection.

Our regular guest, Canon Christopher Thomas, General Secretary of the Bishops’ Conference, takes us day-by-day through Holy Week and encourages us to play a full part in the Chrism Mass and Sacred Triduum.

We pay tribute to the much-loved retired auxiliary Bishop of Birmingham, David McGough, who died recently at his home in Tean, Staffordshire, aged 78.

We also wish a happy retirement to Bishop Tom Williams, an auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Liverpool, safe in the knowledge that he’ll still be very present and active in the city of his birth and ministry.

There’s a word on the Coronation of King Charles III and, of course, we keep the Holy Father, Pope Francis, in our prayers as he continues to recover from bronchitis.
