Good Friday around the world
As Good Friday is observed around the world to commemorate Jesus Christ's crucifixion, the faithful gather in prayer. In some countries such as the Philippines and Indonesia, crucifixions are reenacted, while in Jerusalem, India, Sri Lanka and England, special masses are held.
Take a look at how the world observes Good Friday.
Catholics carry a holy cross at a street parade during a special Good Friday mass in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Holy Week is celebrated in many Christian traditions during the week before Easter.
