Pope attends Ways of the Cross at the Colosseum


Pope Benedict XVI prayed the Way the Cross, at the Colosseum in Rome, a place that commemorates the martyrdom of early Christians. During each of the 14 stations, a meditation prepared by the Italian nun,  Maria Rita Piccione, was read.  Symbolically, a family has carried the cross, accompanied by a young Egyptian woman.
