Good Friday- Women at Foot of the Cross Service- Mary Eileen Collingwood ARCWP

The Women at the Foot of the Cross*
Good Friday Service 2020 – 7 pm.

Gathering HymnBe Not Afraid – Bob Dufford  (in needed, copy & paste web address to browser)

You shall cross the barren desert, but you shall not die of thirst.
You shall wander far in safety though you do not know the way.
You shall speak your words to foreign lands and they will understand.
You shall see the face of God and live. 

Refrain:  Be not afraid.  I go before you always.
              Come follow me, and I will give you rest.

If you pass through raging waters in the sea, you shall not drown.
If you walk amid the burning flames, you shall not be harmed.
I you stand before the pow’r of hell and death is at your side,
Know that I am with you through it all.  R

The First Reflection:  Condemnation

The Woman Witness from the Gospel of John is The Woman Caught in Adultery (Jn 8:2-11)

Witness:      Jesus, here you stand condemned to die when you’ve done nothing
wrong.  Yet when I was condemned for something I truly did, you
stepped in and saved me from certain death.  How can I reconcile
this kind of hateful bias unless I embrace the power of your love? 
You named the truth for what it is outright, but not once did you
condemn me.  Instead, you stood by my side and confronted my
attackers face to face until not one was left.  You said to me to go
my way and sin no more.  I could, because of your transforming
love.  It gave me power to be complete within myself, and not rely
on others for their deceptive “love.”  And so, even though Pilate has
had his say and you’re condemned to die, I have to stay, stand by
your side, and face the world outside.

Reflection:   Women today live in a world that yet condemns.  They suffer at the
hands of those who would blame and denounce, rather than take
responsibility for their own lives.  Assailed themselves, they attack
back.  It is the way of the world in every family, institution,
community and nation on earth.  But it isn’t the way of the cross
or the women who stand tall, or bed low, and speak the truth in
love.  The world is full of these women too, women who on any
given day change their world.

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  With Jesus by our side, are we willing to meet injustice head on, and yet “sin not”—bringing to life transforming love?

ALL:           Jesus, when I stand in the face of injustice in the world around
me, help me lay aside prejudice and the need to condemn. 
Strengthen me within so I make a stand and speak the truth in

The Second Reflection:  Burdens

The Woman Witness from the Gospel of Luke is The Frail, Physically Challenged Woman (Lk 13:10-17)

Witness:      I stand here today tall and pain-free except for the heart pain of
seeing you bleeding and burdened with this heavy cross.  Your
loving touch healed my body that had been bent with pain for 18
years.  It was on a Sabbath and I had gone to the synagogue where
you were teaching about love, as you often did.  You saw me and
beckoned me up.  I was frightened because of the leaders who were
present.  Your gentle voice calmed my fears.  When you laid your
hand on my back I felt your love and healing immediately and
stood up straight.  The leaders were angry and told me I should
come for healing on any day but the Sabbath.  Their cruel words
did not affect me because of your compassion.  You reminded them
that they untied their animals and gave them to drink on the
Sabbath and how much more important was I, a daughter of Sarah
and Abraham.

Reflection:   There are many ways that women are negatively affected by the
burdens they bear today.  Some are burdens they inherit when
others let them down, or they are challenges they take on that
become burdens.  Sometimes our burdens come from religious
institutions and their leaders.

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The questions that confronts us is:  Do we let our burdens cripple us or lead us to resurrection?

ALL:           Jesus, when my life situation seems more than I can bear, lay your
hand upon my fears and give me courage to walk towards

The Third Reflection:  Courage

The Woman Witness from the Gospels of Mark and Matthew is The Canaanite Woman (Mk 7:24-30; Mt 15:21-28)

Witness:      Jesus, as I see you fall to your knees under the weight of that
heavy wooden cross, your body beaten and broken, my heart aches
that I can’t help you the way you helped my daughter.  That day
when I fell to my knees at your feet and said, “Have mercy on me
and my daughter for she is possessed by a demon,” you could have
ignored me.  I was a Gentile, a Greek, a Canaanite by religious, a
pagan to the Jews, a foreigner to their culture, despised as an outsider.  Your disciples tired to push me out of the way.  But a mother cannot be deterred from getting help for her child.  You saw my faith; you were moved by my courage to speak to you directly.  You healed my daughter that day.  It didn’t matter to you that I was a foreigner.  Your mission included all people of faith.  And here you are today, an outsider, despised and ridiculed, but giving your life for what you believe, for what we can become.

Reflection:   Who are our sick daughters today?  The outcasts?  The despised? 
They are women like Jeanne, a daughter recovering from
prostitution and drug abuse, with needle marks up and down her
beautiful arms.  A recovering daughter who lives sober and drug
free for the first time in many years.

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  Can we recognize the sick daughters today, and do we have the courage to risk ridicule, rejection and embarrassment in order to help them?

ALL:           Jesus, give me the Canaanite woman’s courage to speak up for the
voiceless, to comfort the afflicted, to be reminded that we are called
to live a Gospel of inclusiveness.

The Fourth Reflection:  A Mother’s Love

The Woman Witness from Luke, Matthew, Mark, John and Acts is Mary, the Mother of Jesus. (Lk 1:26-56; 2:1-52; 8:19-21; Mt 1:18-25; 2:1-23; 12:46-50; Mk 3:31-35; 6:1-6; Jn 2:1-12; 19:25-27; Acts 1:14)

Witness:      Here I am, beyond words, a lifetime of mothering come to this
heart rendering end!  The years flash across my mind and I
remember Simeon in the temple telling me that pain will pierce
through my soul like a sword.  Is this how I am to be blessed
among women, bursting the God-news, dancing to the song of my
God?  I did not always understand, that day in the temple when he
was twelve, or in the synagogue when he turned me and his
siblings away, as he defined your will.  How am I to understand
now?  Has a lifetime of pondering your ways come to this?  Must it
be that this is how you strike the root of evil, my son on the cross? 
How now do I rejoice in God?  Whatever does it mean that John
will be my son and me his mother?

Reflection:   Countless women in the world today have had to bear the death of
their sons and daughters in an unjust world.  Women on every
continent, of every color and faith!  Yet how often they go on
confronting injustice wherever they find it—beyond war, violence,
addiction, and hate—to work for peace and for love in their world
and ours.

ALL:           We are an Easter people!  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  Are we willing to bear the crosses in our lives, allowing God to confront evil, agreeing to endure?

ALL:           Jesus, as Mary mothered you, so she mothers me.  Help me to
                  ponder all of life, continuing with a mother’s love, no matter what
the pain.  Give me the strength to join women everywhere who
confront evil and work for peace.

The Fifth Reflection:  Women’s Gifts

The Woman Witness from the Gospels of Luke and Mark is Joanna. (Lk 8:1-3; 24:1-25; Mk 15:21)

Witness:      I am Joanna and I have traveled with Jesus for many miles helping
him wherever I could.  How I want to help him now!  He has been
so badly beaten and is in so much pain.  I see that the Roman
guards have ordered a bystander to help.  This man does not seem
to know who Jesus is and he reluctantly comes forward.  Jesus
looks deeply at him and is saying something.  The man seems
amazed and willingly takes the cross.  I will never forget the first
time Jesus looked at me.  I was curious to hear him since my
husband had told me many stories of the happenings at Herod’s
palace where he is a steward.  Herod was interested in John the
Baptizer and in Jesus.  Jesus was preaching nearby and I went. 
He spoke in a way that gave us all comfort and hope.  Afterwards I
passed him and he looked at me and I felt loved.  I cannot explain
it more clearly, but I have been helping him ever since.

Reflection:   Like the Romans who had power over the Jews, many men feel
they have power over women because of false beliefs that women
are weaker and in need of protection.  Most often, women are
discounted because their gifts and talents are not recognized.  Yet,
these gifts are needed in the world today more than ever.

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  Have we identified our gifts and talents and are we using them in service to others?

ALL:           Jesus, help me to see in myself the gifts I can use to help others,
and help me always to encourage others in their efforts.

The Sixth Reflection:  Compassion

The Woman Witness from scriptural times is Veronica.

Witness:      I didn’t really know you Jesus.  I was just on my way home when I
saw a crowd and heard a commotion.  The Roman soldiers were
everywhere.  I pushed through the crowd to see what was going on. 
There you were.  Tortured looking.  Blood trickling down your face
from the crown of thorns pressed on your head.  Your body covered
with open wounds from the beating.  Instinctively, I took the veil
from my head and stepped forward to wipe the sweat and blood
from your face.  Our eyes met for that moment.  The march of
death stopped for an instant.  And I saw the face of God in you.  As
I stepped away, there was your image on my veil—forever a
reminder that God can be found in the human face.

Reflection:   Most women lead ordinary lives.  We go about our daily business,
following our usual routines, like Veronica on her way home.  But
sometimes we are instinctively moved to respond, to reach out, to
do what seems ordinary to us, but is extraordinary in the eyes of
someone in need.  We don’t always realize the effect of a kind word,
a smile, a hug, a touch.  Each time our eyes meet another’s, we see
the face of God.  We turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  Do we seek the face of God in everyone that we meet each day?  Can we make an ordinary moment extraordinary by reaching out to touch the face of God in another?

ALL:           Jesus, you have said, “Seek my face.”  My heart responds: “It is
your face that I seek.”  Let my acts of love impress the true image
of Jesus on my heart.  Let me see the face of God in all human
faces, especially the bloodied and the bruised.

The Seventh Reflection:  Endurance

The Woman Witness from the Gospel of Luke is The Widow of Nain. (Lk 7:11-17)

Witness:      O Jesus, I am stunned to the core by the paradox of today.  In
Nain you reached out to me, a widow, about to bury my only son. 
Your heart was broken, and you told me not to cry.  Then you bid
my son, dead in the coffin, to rise.  When he began to speak, you
handed him over to me and all who were there praised God,
knowing they were standing on holy ground.  They shouted how
God was back, tending to our needs.  So where are you today,
God?  How is it that Jesus who raised my son from the dead is
about to leave his widow mother to bury her firstborn son? 
Instated of handing back her son, Jesus hands his mother now to
John.  Today you do not tell me not to cry!  How did it come to

Reflection:   We live in a world of paradox.  Every woman alive has faced this
dilemma—living in a world of light ad darkness.  Life brings joy,
and life brings sorrow!  Still, women of faith have always lived in a
tension, through the depth of pain into the joy of light and day. 
This woman doesn’t hide, but walks the path of life as it is.

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  Are we willing to accept life on life’s terms, and bring to all of it our faith, which carries the force to move mountains?

ALL:           Jesus, in a world not yet fully in kinship with the Divine, when I
encounter pain and death, help me choose life!

The Eighth Reflection:   Sorrow

The Woman Witnesses from the Gospel of Luke are The Daughters of Jerusalem.  (Lk 23: 26-31)

Witness:      We are many women gathered together in our sorrow.  Jesus looks
on us and says “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but
weep for yourselves and for your children.”  She believed n us and
healed us and recognized our gifts.  A great injustice is happening
now.  An innocent man has been found guilty for telling the truth. 
We are helpless to top the slaughter.  We weep and we are
tormented to the very center of our being.  Where is our hope now?

Reflection:   We women still weep at the loss of innocence.  We weep for
children who are abandoned or exposed to cruel and harsh
environments and teenagers left to fend for themselves with no
guidance.  We women still weep over injustice.  Women who work
long hours for less pay than mean and make up a greater
proportion of the poor.  Women who are victims of a patriarchal
system that misuses power to control by edit and regulation—a
system that does not invite women to participate as fully as then
are capable.  We women still weep when people are so easily killed
in the name of religion, war and prejudice.
ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  When we weep and are tormented to the very center of our being, where do we find hope?

ALL:           Jesus, when injustice and acts of cruelty weigh heavy on my heart,
please give me the strength and vision to open myself to you and to
new possibilities.

The Ninth Reflection:  Women’s Witness

The Woman Witness from the Gospel of John is The Samaritan Woman at the Well.  (Jn 4:1-42)

Witness:      The pain of falling the third time must be excruciating.  My only
consolation is that I know you are the Holy One, offering hope and
new life.  You told me that day by the well when you were passing
through Samaria going from Southern Judea to Galilee with your
disciples.  They went off to buy food and I came to the well to draw
water.  You were sitting there and you asked me for a drink.  Me, a
woman, a Samaritan, divorced five times, living with man not my
husband.  You amazed me with what you knew without my telling
you.  I understood what you meant when you said you were the
living water.  I dropped my water jug and went to tell the others in
my village.  They listened to me and believed, too.  I don’t
understand why you have to suffer like this, but I do have faith
that you are the hope and life that we long for.

Reflection:   There are women today who are called to be leaders in their
communities, proclaiming Gospel freedom and equality in ways
that will liberate and heal us from the bondage of sexism and
patriarchy.  Jesus reminds us that social acceptability and rule
keeping is not what true religion is all about.  Just like he filled the
Samaritan woman with the ‘living water’ of faith and joyful
enthusiasm, he will do the same for us today.

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  Do we believe that women are called to be messengers of God’s love, to be leaders in our church?

ALL:           Jesus, give me a heart willing to love and serve others.  Help me to
accept that no matter how sinful or broken my life may be, God
may be calling me to be a messenger of Divine Love, as a leader in
our church.

The Tenth Reflection:   Forgiveness

The Woman Witness from the Gospel of Luke is The Woman Who Anointed Jesus’ Feet.  (Lk 7:36-50)

Witness:      Here I am, weeping yet again, but now because I see you hanging
on this tree.  But why?  That night I knew you were at the table at
the Pharisee’s house, I came in weeping with some ointment in an
alabaster flask, and you allowed my tears to fall upon your feet.  I
wiped them with my hair and kissed your feet, and then anointed
them.  It was because of my much-loving that you forgave my sins.  
You praised my faith and set me free so I could go in peace.  And
now, here you are yourself the one upon the cross, yet once again
forgiving all of them because they know not what they do.  Is this
the cost of love—to know the truth and still forgive and be
forgiven?  Is this the way to peace?

Reflection:   Still today, it is the women who have been forgiven much who love
much!  They have come to accept their humanity for what it is, a
work in progress, not yet complete.  With this faith and
understanding, they “let go and let God” to heal the other.  Thus
forgiven as they forgive, they stand in resurrection power.

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  Are we willing to let our hearts be broken to the point where we are prepared to forgive and be forgiven?

ALL:           Jesus, Abba God has made it very clear— “Forgive us as we forgive
one another.”  Help me, O God, even through tears, to forgive from
the heart, and to accept your forgiveness.

The Eleventh Reflection:   Trusting the God Within

The Woman Witness from the Gospel of Matthew is Pilate’s Wife.  (Mt 27:15-26)

Witness:      I had a dream last night after Pilate told me about the unrest
among the Jewish leaders.  It was so vivid and disturbed me
greatly.  This man, Jesus, is a good man and has done nothing to
stir the people to revolt.  Why do they hate such a man?  All I have
heard about him is that he preaches to the people who seem to
love him.  I have heard of stories that he is able to heal people. 
There seems to be so much hatred on the part of the Roman and
Jewish leaders.  I do not understand why this is happening and I
fear for my husband.  He was such a strong man but he could not
stand up to the crowds incited by those in power.  What will
become of this tragic event?

Reflection:   Men, and some women, caught up in the patriarchal system do not
recognize the value of women’s insights, knowledge, and even
wisdom.  Often women themselves doubt and fear to follow what is
deep in their hearts.  They have been so acculturated to believe
that only men and those in recognized positions of authority speak
truth.  God revealed to Pilate’s wife the true nature of Jesus.  She
suffered doubt and eventually spoke truth to her husband in hopes
of saving this righteous man.

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  Do we search our innermost beliefs and trust the truth we find there to lead us to reveal the true Christ?

ALL:           Jesus, give me the grace to recognize the promptings of the Spirit
within me and the courage to act from inner conviction.

The Twelfth Reflection:  Servant Leadership

The Woman Witness from the Gospel of Matthew is: The Mother of Zebedee’s sons, James and John.  (Mt 2:20-23; 27:55-56)

Witness:      O Jesus, I saw you look up to the heavens as you breathed your
last breath on that cross.  It’s 3 pm. and it looks like night.  The
earth is trembling and feels like it is breaking apart.  Many are
running away in fear.  You told my sons, James and John, that
you would be betrayed and killed.  But how could this really
happen to our only hope for whom we have been waiting?  I
remember when I asked you to give my sons places of honor in
your kin-dom.  I didn’t understand when you told them that those
in authority must be like the least among them, like those who
serve.  You told us how the godless rulers throw their weight
around, how quickly a little power goes to their heads.  You warned
my sons that they could not do that.  You said “Whoever wants to
be great must become a servant.”  Today you are the ultimate
servant, giving your life in exchange for many who are held

Reflection:   Women by instinct and tradition are servant leaders.  Women
know how to nurture others, to express their care for others, to
share their power, to work cooperatively, to build consensus, to
lead by serving.  This is often considered a weakness int eh
patriarchal societies of business and the church.  Women need to
be affirmed.  Wheat are often considered their weaknesses are truly
their strengths and their strengths are sorely needed by the world

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  Do we recognize that our strengths are often portrayed as our weaknesses?  Are we willing to be agents of transformation in our world?

ALL:           Jesus, help me to lead my life as a servant leader.  Help me to
teach others by my example to be servant leaders.  Help the
leaders of our church to be servant leaders in the spirit of Jesus,
the Christ.

The Thirteenth Reflection:  Faith

The Woman Witness from the Gospel of Luke is Mary, the sister of Martha.
(Lk 10:38-42)

Witness:      Jesus, I never thought it would come to this, even though you tried
to warn us!  You told Martha when she complained to you, that I
had chosen the better portion.  She was distracted with her
serving, anxious and troubled about many things.  You promised
what was mine would still remain.  Are you sure, Rabbi?  The day
you raised my brother from the dead you said to us, “Did I not tell
you that if you would believe, you’d see the glory of God?”  We did,
and we believed!  So, where’s the glory now?  You wept yourself
when you called Lazarus out from the tomb and told us to unbind
him.  You said that you are the resurrection and the life!  I am
confused!  You told us you were glad you were not there when he
lay ill and dying.  You stayed away two extra days, so we’d believe. 
Believe what, Rabbi?

Reflection:   The world is still confusing, but when women of today stand strong
in faith, rooted in Abba’s love, they know God’s glory.  It may not
be in outcome, but they see and experience first-hand how God’s
presence transforms.  They allow that loving relationship with God
to permeate their daily lives.  They bring their being into their
doing, and Mary’s better portion prevails.
ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  Are we willing to grow up in Christ, to become integrated in both our Mary and our Martha sides?

ALL:           Jesus, you’ve told us plainly—love never fails.  Whatever situation
life may bring, help me to bring to it your unfailing love.

The Fourteenth Reflection:   Empowerment

The Woman Witness from the Gospels of Mark and Matthew is The Woman Who Anoints Jesus’ Head.  (Mk 14:3-9; Mt 26:6-13)

Witness:      His suffering is over finally.  I will always treasure his words to me
even though I was not sure what he meant.  He was at supper at
the house of Simon and I was helping prepare the meal.  An almost
overpowering feeling came over me and I went to get the alabaster
jar of ointment.  Entering the room, I only had eyes for Jesus.  I
felt I was being led by something greater than myself.  Breaking
the bottle open, I poured some of this beautiful ointment on his
head.  The men who were present objected but Jesus told them of
leave me alone, that I was doing what was in my power to do.  He
said I was anointing him for burial as if he knew he would die
soon.  I felt I was involved in a great mystery.  He surprised me
when he said that, wherever this story is told, what I had done
would be told in memory of me.  How did I know to anoint him? 
Deep in my heart I feel I was led by God to do this loving gesture.

Reflection:   The women of today need to hear this and other stories of women
who were full disciples of Jesus.  We need to hear how this woman,
by anointing his head, was recognizing him as suffering servant,
our only hope of glory.  Of greater need for the women today is to
tell the story of how Jesus recognized women and all they are
capable of doing.  Women need to do what is in their power to do. 

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confront us is:  Do we seek to listen to the Spirit within and let ourselves be led to do what is in our power to do?

ALL:           Jesus, help me to recognize what it is that I have the power to do
to bring about your presence in the world.

The Fifteenth Reflection:   Discipleship

The Woman Witness from the Gospels of Luke and John, is Mary of Magdala.
(Lk 8:1-3; Jn 19:25; 20:1-18)

Witness:      Very early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, I
went with some of the other women to the tomb.  The stone had
been rolled away.  We were frightened.  I ran back to tell Peter that
they had taken the Master from the tomb and we didn’t know
where they laid him.  Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb
and saw that it was empty.  But they left and went back home.  I
couldn’t move.  I just stood there weeping.  Someone asked me,
“Why are you weeping?  Whom do you seek?”  I thought it was the
gardener and that maybe he had moved Jesus.  Then he said,
“Mary.”  I knew his voice.  I shouted, “Rabboni”—teacher.  My
Jesus was alive.  He told me to go and tell the others.  I ran to the
disciples.  I said, “I have seen the Rabbi!”  I helped them
understand the things that Jesus had taught me.

Reflection:   Mary of Magdala was a leader among the disciples and the first
witness to the resurrection.  Women today are called to be
disciples, witnesses that continue to lead, in spite of being ignored
or denied leadership roles.

ALL:           We are an Easter people.  We know the Spirit who brought Jesus
from death to new life!

The question that confronts us is:  Are we, as women disciples of Christ, willing to be leaders in spite of the opposition?

ALL:           Jesus, empower me, as you empowered Mary of Magdala, to spread
the Good News and to be a leader among your followers.

As we conclude our reflection on the women who journeyed with Jesus to his crucifixion and beyond, we now engage our church’s tradition in offering intercessory prayers that encompass the needs of our world.  It is right and just to present the descendant children of the women who accompanied Jesus so long ago, who are currently in desperate need of our prayer tonight:

Response:  Crucified Jesus, we awaken to your call!

For the child crucified by the unharnessed pedophilia scandal that continues to run amok in our church and broader society: R

For the child crucified by the acts of sexual abuse within the tourism trade throughout our world:  R

For the child crucified by the devastation of the ongoing wars across the globe: R

For the child living in a poor country who is crucified by the trafficking of their organs on the black market:  R

For the child crucified due to the access of free weapons in the United States: R 

For the child crucified due to the ravages of obesity resulting from the fresh food deserts in urban areas, and easy access to fast food chains who offer unhealthy food choices:  R

For the child crucified due to seeking asylum from an oppressive country, who faces hostile separation from family and detainment in cages: R

For all the children of God as they seek relief and cure from our present coronavirus pandemic and the isolation it entails:  R

ALL:  O Holy One, we believe that the call of this moment is the call to faith, to
believe that your love is also present in darkness so deep that nothing
can possibly assuage it.  It is the call of faith in Your Timeless Presence
in this time of total defeat.  It is a trust that You who created us and love
us will hold us up through this moment, so that the darkness does not
break our hearts. 

And we remember throughout history that in the moment a woman comes home to herself, the moment she knows that she has become a person of influence, an artist of her life, a sculptor of her universe, a person with rights and responsibilities, who is respected and recognized, the resurrection of the world begins!**

Closing HymnWe Remember – Marty Haugen

We remember how you loved us to your death,
And still we celebrate, for you are with us here.
And we believe that we see you
As you appear in the faces of your people.
We remember, we celebrate, we believe!
