 Pope Pens Own Meditations for Via Crucis' this Year

Pope Francis will deliver his own written meditations for this year's Via Crucis (Way of the Cross) procession at the Colosseum on Good Friday, a departure from tradition.

The Holy See Press Office announced the Pope's decision, highlighting the theme "In Prayer with Jesus on the Way of the Cross." Each of the fourteen stations will be accompanied by the Pope's personal reflections.

This initiative coincides with the Year of Prayer, a period of reflection called for by Pope Francis leading up to the 2025 Jubilee Year. Traditionally, different individuals or groups have been entrusted with writing the meditations for the annual Via Crucis.

According to the Press Office, the Pope's reflections will focus on Jesus' experience during the Way of the Cross, inviting participants to walk alongside him in spirit. The meditations will center on Christ's suffering, with a broader reference to current events, though specific details were not provided.

The traditional Good Friday procession will begin at 9:15 pm at the historic Colosseum.
