Pope Francis’ Via Crucis at the Colosseum: full text of meditations
March 26, 2013
The Office for the Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff has released the meditations for the Way of the Cross at which Pope Francis will preside.
The Way of the Cross will take place on Good Friday evening in the Colosseum.
The meditations on the 14 traditional stations were prepared by Lebanese youth under the direction of Cardinal Béchara Boutros Raï, the patriarch of the Maronite Catholic Church. The meditations include illustrations by a 19th-century Palestinian Franciscan artist.
