Vatican: A nun responsible for the meditations of the Stations of the Cross at the Coliseum

Source: FSSPX News

The meditations for the 2011 Via Crucis [Way of the Cross] were composed at the Holy Father’s request by Mother Maria Rita Piccione, president of the Federation of Augustinian Nuns (the Roman convent of the Four Crowned Saints).  The illustrations in the booklet for the stations are the work of Sister Elena Manganelli, a nun in Lecceto (Sienna).  The meditations will be read on Holy Friday during the Stations of the Cross in the Coliseum, at which Benedict XVI will preside.  (Source : VIS – DICI no. 233 dated April 16, 2011)
