Thousands of Christian pilgrims marked Good Friday (March 29) by walking the "Via Dolorosa" or "The Way of Sorrows" in Jerusalem's Old City. The faithful followed the route they believe Jesus walked, carrying his cross to where he was crucified more than 2,000 years ago. Along the route, crowds stopped to pray at the various stations of the Cross which signify significant points on his journey. Many pilgrims also carried wooden crosses, with one group acting out the route complete with Roman soldiers and a man wearing a crown of thorns covered in fake blood.
