The Woman with a Haemmorhage
As we come to the end of Eastertide, we play the last in our series of “Women of the Cross” series. This time we are listening to the story of The woman with a haemmorhage, who reached out to connect with Jesus, by touching the hem of his cloak. She was hoping that she might be healed, but was too shy and afraid to make herself known until Jesus kept calling out for the person who had touched him.
Like the others, she is a woman of God, who was present in Jesus’s life; whose story is often told but not always heard.
We are very grateful to Fr James Hanvey SJ, Master of Campion Hall, University of Oxford for imagining and writing these pieces.
