Francis washed and kissed prisoner’s feet at Rebibbia prison in Rome yesterday April 2nd after holding a Holy Thursday Mass of the Last Supper for inmates. The pontiff knelt over a basin to clean
the feet of 12 prisoners – mimicking Jesus’ washing of his apostles’
feet on the Thursday before his death. The Pope joins other
Christians around the world in colourful celebration of Holy Week. See
some more photos of the celebrations from around the world…

In the Philippines, people are allowing themselves to be nailed to the cross for Good Friday rituals..

 Others are peeling the skin on their backs with wooden sticks
