Christians in Good Friday processions the world over bear crosses, wounds and prayers over a few blocks or many miles to reenact Jesus’ suffering on the path to crucifixion. At the Vatican, Pope Francis lies down in prayer during the Passion of Christ Mass inside St. Peter’s Basilica. Hundreds of Christians stream through the cobblestone alleyways of Jerusalem’s Old City toward the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, traditionally believed by many to be the site of the crucifixion.

Here are some images of Good Friday around the world.
