Each year a Via Crucis takes place at the Colosseum on Good Friday and is presided over by the pope. The text that is read is always written by a different author. In 2012, the honor will go to Danilo and Anna Maria Zanzucchi, the Italian couple that launched the movement “New Family,” that's part of the Focolare movement.
Last year it was ready by a cloistered nun, Maria Rita Piccione.
The Via Crucis, also known as the stations of the cross, are 14 scenes
representing the most important moments of the Passion of Jesus, which
took place on Good Friday.
