Photos of Holy Week in Rome

These are a few images of The Pope's Good Friday mass in the Vatican Rome, Italy. It goes without saying that what is first and foremost through all the Triduum is the Triduum itself; the liturgical commemoration of the passion, death and glorious resurrection of Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, and whose sacrifice we mystically and truly celebrate each and every day upon our altars. I thought I would put together a brief photo montage of interesting liturgical sights we have seen starting a week ago on Palm Sunday.
