Holy Week - The Way of the Cross along the Via Dolorosa

It began at midday. The Way of the Cross along the Franciscan Via Dolorosa. From the Qur'anic school, where the first station is situated, to the Holy Sepulchre, the Custos guided the faithful on Fridsay afternoon in their commemoration of Christ's sacrifice for us.

More than ever on Good Friday, the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre is the heart of Christian Jerusalem. Since dawn, pilgrims have gathered in the courtyard, waiting to take part in the liturgy of the Passion at the altar of Golgotha ... next to the rock in which the cross of Christ once stood.
