O Holy Week

Starting with the processions and shrubberies of Palm Sunday a few days ago, we are now fully into Holy Week – better known as the last days of Lent, leading up to Easter.  Being as we’re at the, well, center of Catholicism, there are a few things going on around Rome this week.  Here’s a selected roundup of Easter services in English, courtesy of Wanted in Rome:
