These are my photos of the Colosseum today. We were kind of staking out where might be the best sight from which to view the Via Crucis on Friday night. I’m not sure that we will even be able to get close, but we will see. Pope Francesco will have the Station in the Colosseum and then walk across the way (not far) to the Temple of Venus for a final prayer (or something like that). We found a hill from which we would be able to see everything, but I don’t know how accessible it will be with the crowd. You can see in the photos that there is already a lot of media stuff in place, as well as the cross in the Colosseum.
