Pope Francis Good Friday Lord's Passion at St Peter's and at the Colosseum ahead of the 'Way of the Cross' this evening.
Pope Francis has given yet another sign of how different his papacy is going to be. Not for him the tradition and splendour of St Peter's for the Washing of The Feet ceremony.
Instead he went to a Detention Centre in Rome and washed the feet of twelve young inmates, as Juliet Bremner reports they included two women, one of whom was a Muslim:
Pope Francis has broken with tradition in an Easter ritual as he washed and kissed the feet of a dozen inmates at a juvenile detention centre on Holy Thursday. Previous Pope's have maintained the traditional foot washing within the Vatican with priests.
Two of the 12 were young women, an even more remarkable choice given that the rite re-enacts Jesus' washing of the feet of his male disciples, the inclusion of women has been banned by some dioceses.
Orthodox and Muslim detainees were also included in the twelve according to news reports.
"This is a symbol, it is a sign - washing your feet means I am at your service," Francis told the youngsters.
"Help one another. This is what Jesus teaches us. This is what I do. And I do it with my heart. I do this with my heart because it is my duty, as a priest and bishop I must be at your service."
The holy business of choosing a new Pope begins inside the Vatican tomorrow.
Outside, the world will wait for the white smoke.
