(Vatican Radio) The Papal Almoner, Archbishop Konrad Krajewski, spend the evening of Good Friday on a special Via Crucis through the streets of Rome. This Way of the Cross, conducted in spiritual union with the Via Crucis of Pope Francis at the Coliseum, was to offer concrete charity to the homeless of the Italian capital.
The Archbishop was accompanied by residents of the “Gift of Mercy” dormitory, which offers a place for otherwise homeless people. During their “Via Crucis in the City”, they distributed sleeping bags, as well as a small gift from Pope Francis, to about 100 “stations”. Their mission ended after midnight.
