On Oct. 27, the Eastern Orthodox Church celebrates the feast of St. Procula, the wife of Pontius Pilate.
In Matthew 27:19, we read the message she sent to her husband: "Let there be nothing between you and this just man; for I have suffered much today because of a dream about him."
She is not named in the Gospel, but tradition assigned her the names Procula and Claudia.
"'Men, and some women, caught up in the patriarchal system do not recognize the value of women's insights,' the booklet reads in the section about Pilate's wife. 'Often women themselves doubt and fear to follow what they know deep in their hearts.'"
