Pope Francis will not go to the Colosseum in Rome to witness the traditional Stations of the Cross Holy Friday and instead will follow him from his residence in the Vatican for the “intense cold”communicated the Holy See. It will be the first time that Francisco does not participate in the Stations of the Cross.
“Due to the intense cold of these days, Pope Francis will continue the Stations of the Cross this afternoon from the Santa Marta Housejoining the prayers of those who will meet with the Diocese of Rome in the Colosseum,” the Holy See press office reported hours before the ritual began.
Yesterday, Thursday, the Pope went to a juvenile prison on the outskirts of Rome, where he participated in a mass and also got up from his wheelchair to wash the feet of twelve prisoners as a memory of the Last Suppera gesture that he made days after being discharged from the hospital last Saturday, since he was hospitalized for several days due to bronchitis.
