Rome, Italy, Mar 25, 2018 / 14:02 pm
As the Vatican gears up for the Synod on youth in October, Pope Francis has chosen a group of Italian high school students to write the meditations for his Good Friday Way of the Cross at the Colosseum.
The Pope tasked religion teacher Andrea Monda with choosing and coordinating the 15 students, who attend a classical high school in Rome.
Marta Croppo, 18, is writing the meditation for the 14th station, when Christ's body was laid in the tomb.
She told CNA March 23 that she thinks Pope Francis wanted young people to write the meditations because of their simplicity and their ability "to communicate another type of message to the world."
