Introduction

Christ's Passion and Resurrection from Assisi

Our Holy Week podcasts come from Assisi, Italy, where we meditate on Our Lord's Passion and Resurrection through a Franciscan lens. Fr Christopher Whitehead, from the Clifton Diocese and academic and teacher Fr Dermot Power provide the audio reflections to a backdrop of moving images that can be found in the basilicas of the birthplace of St Francis of Assisi. We have three podcasts starting with Good Friday, followed by Holy Saturday and concluding on Easter Sunday.
