RELIGION: Pope Francis is missing Good Friday procession

BREAKING NEWS: Pope Francis will miss the Good Friday procession in Rome this year.

The Pontiff will not preside over Good Friday’s Way of the Cross event due to extremely cold weather in Rome, the Vatican has said. 

Instead of presiding over the torch-led procession at the Colosseum, Francis, pictured left, will watch from the hotel where he lives in the Vatican.

The pontiff, who was recently treated in hospital for bronchitis, will still attend the Passion celebration at St Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican added.
