Good Friday

Trending on: National Twitter, Google Trends, Google Plus

Why: Hundreds of Christians are marking the crucifixion of Jesus in the Holy Land. Worshippers have packed Jerusalem's Holy Sepulcher church, where Jesus is believed to have been crucified, buried and resurrected, for a morning mass that started Good Friday events. Roman Catholics and Protestants will walk in processions following Jesus' footsteps in Jerusalem's Old City later in the day. And a mass at a church in Bethlehem, built atop the site where Jesus is believed to have been born, takes place in the evening.[ The Philadelphia Inquirer ]
