Just like every other year, Pope Francis presides over the Stations of the Cross from the Colosseum in Rome. The stations are prayed in this historic building to remember the persecuted Christians.
Thousands of people will accompany him to listen to this year's meditations, entitled "God's Mercy,” which were written by cardinal and archbishop of Perugia, Italy, Gualtiero Basseti.
The broadcast begins at 9:00p.m. Rome time.
