the Eighth station of the cross

Aside

Jesus speaks to the holy women. Yesterdays Mass of Holy Thursday has become a small focal point of Women’s liberation within the Catholic Church. The point is made that they also should have their feet washed, and that ritual should not be dominated by men. When Jesus spoke to the Holy Women, they were not in power, yet I wonder if they were really helpless? Many times those that give aid to someone carrying a cross do so silently, often unrecognized, and do so behind the scene. They do not attract much attention, but usually accomplish the most. Those Holy women should be remembered for the way they brought about change, and they also should be remembered for the change they did truly bring about. Would it be wrong to associate the Holy Women with quiet diligence, dignity and determination?
