    Background: Pope Paul carried a large wooden cross over the Palatine Hill in Rome on Friday (April 9) in the "Via Crucis" ceremony to mark the crucifixion of Christ. This is an important ceremony in the Roman Catholic world, and each year the Pontiff carries the Cross for as many of the 14 "stations" as he can manage in the procession from the Colosseum. Last year, Pope Paul carried it for three. On Friday, appearing to be in good health, he managed to carry the heavy cross for the final five stages. Later, he made an appeal for peace in Jerusalem -- a holy town to Roman Catholics. Jews and Arabs alike.
