Pope John Paul II carrys a two-meter high cross during the first part of the Via Crucis (Way of the Cross) procession around the Colosseum, in Rome April 5. The 75-year-old pope led the traditional Good Friday ceremony around the candle-lit amphitheatre where early Christians were martyred, but for the second year running, he walked slowly and carried the cross for only the first part of the procession.PAOLO COCCO, Reuters
