VATICAN CITY, VATICAN - APRIL 15: Pope Francis leads the Way of the Cross, Via Crucis at Rome's Colosseum, on April 15, 2022 in Rome, Italy. The traditional Via Crucis returned on Good Friday evening to the Colosseum in Rome for the first time since 2019, a hiatus of nearly three years. The highlight of the meditations came in the 13th Station, which saw two women carry the cross together: Albina hails from Russia and Irina from Ukraine.
