French lay theologian to compose meditations for Good Friday service
March 31, 2017
Anne-Marie Pelletier, a French theologian and Bible scholar, has been chosen by Pope Francis to write the meditations for this year’s Stations of the Cross on Good Friday.
A lay woman, married and with three children, Pelletier was the 2014 recipient of the Ratzinger Prize in theology; she was the first woman accorded that honor.
Pope Francis will lead the Stations of the Cross in the Roman Coliseum on Good Friday.
