Pope Francis Prays For Abandoned In Good Friday Service

Pope Francis has led Easter's Way of the Cross procession in Rome, with prayers for the poor and the abandoned.

The solemn ceremony marks Christians' commemoration of Christ's crucifixion on Good Friday. Tens of thousands of people lined the route near the 2,000-year-old Colosseum.

The Pope heard the Vatican's official preacher deliver a sermon denouncing greed and the love of money.

The procession is part of the Church's Easter triduum festival.

Pope Francis urged the crowd to "remember all the abandoned people" and spoke of the "monstrosity of man" when he lets evil guide him.

"Evil won't have the last word, but love, mercy and pardon will" he added at the end of the Way of the Cross.
