Easter religious celebrations in Rome Italy

This video will give you a glimpse of the number of people taking part in the Way of the Cross (Via Crucis) on Friday.

The next short video clip gives you a sense of the atmosphere at St. Peter’s Square on Easter Sunday. The day was cloudy but the setting was beautiful.
