The Pope will not go to the Colosseum in Rome for the Via Crucis on Good Friday

He did the same on the morning of the same day during the Christmas Mass, which commemorates the institution of the sacrament of Holy Orders by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper and is dedicated to the renewal by the priests of the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.

There he delivered a sermon asking the priests to avoid division, which later “encourages feasts and cordadas” in the church.

For its part, the Via Crucis is an annual journey that hundreds of believers make every Good Friday at the Colosseum in Rome, through fourteen meditations that recount Jesus’ ascent to Calvary, his crucifixion, and his placement in the tomb.

Last year, part of the route was devoted to asking for peace after the outbreak of war in Ukraine, although last year’s presence on the Via Crucis of a Ukrainian and Russian woman carrying the cross together at one of the stations sparked complaints . Ukrainian Embassy to the Vatican.

On Holy Saturday, the pope will preside over the Pascual Vigil and on Sunday he will lead the Resurrection Mass in St. Peter’s Square and pronounce the traditional Urbi et Orbi benediction on the central balcony of the front facade of the Vatican Basilica, according to the program.
