First, was Palm Sunday where thousands of pilgrims from all over the world gathered in St. Peter's Square. 

Only Holy Thursday the Pope led the Chrism Mass where he blessed the Holy Oils that will be used to administer the Sacraments throughout the year. Later that afternoon, he led the Last Supper in Rome's Rebibbia prison, where he washed the feet of 12 inmates, half of them women. Also included in the group, was the baby of a female prisoner.
