The Way of the Cross at the Colosseum
Join Pope Francis at 9:15 p.m. at the Colosseum for the Via Crucis, or the Way of the Cross. He will process to each of the 14 stations of the Via Crucis, which were placed at the Colosseum in 1744 by Pope Benedict XIV. Meditations on each station are given in several languages, as a large cross with burning torches lights the night. At the end, Pope Francis will give a reflection and impart his blessing. An indulgence is available to the faithful who partake in the Via Crucis.
