Pope asks young people to write meditations for Way of Cross

VATICAN (CNS): In light of this year’s Synod of Bishops on Young People, Pope Francis has asked that the meditations for Way of the Cross on Good Friday be written by a group of students Vatican News reported on March 8.
The pope wants today’s younger generation to reflect on the Passion of Christ. 
Each year, the pope asks a different person or group of people to write the meditations for the nighttime Holy Week event at Rome’s Colosseum which this year falls on March 30.
The pope named Andrea Monda, an Italian writer with degrees in law and in religious studies, who quit his job in the legal department of an Italian bank to teach high school religion class to oversee and collect the different texts for the 14 stations of the cross.
