- Pope Francis offered a message of hope at a scaled back Easter vigil service at St. Peter's Basilica. Only about 200 masked people were allowed to attend last night's service, marking the period between Christ's crucifixion and his resurrection on Easter Sunday.

In his Easter message, the Pope urged the faithful not to lose hope, even through the continued dark months of the coronavirus pandemic. Italy actually entered a three-day nationwide lockdown yesterday amid a new surge in the virus there.
