Vatican Easter Vigil

Pope Francis holding a tall, lit, white candle, enters a darkened St. Peter’s Basilica, at the Vatican Saturday, March 30, 2013, to begin the Vatican’s Easter vigil service. Pope Francis is celebrating a trimmed back Easter Vigil service after having reached out to Muslims and women during a Holy Week in which he has begun to put his mark on the Catholic Church. Francis processed into a darkened and silent St. Peter’s Basilica at the start of the Saturday service, which recalls the period between Christ’s crucifixion on Good Friday and resurrection on Easter Sunday.
