The image of Pope Francis celebrating Easter Mass in empty St. Peter’s Square, which marked the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, should be repeated this year
THE Vatican announced on Thursday, the 25th, that the celebrations of the Easter week will be carried out with the limited presence of the public in order to avoid the spread of the new coronavirus. Thus, this will be the second consecutive year that St. Peter’s Square will not have the traditional crowd of believers during the Easter. In 2020, one of the images that marked the beginning of Covid-19 pandemic showed the Pope Francisco saying a mass almost completely alone. The scene will be repeated next week, when the ceremonies will take place mainly in St. Peter’s Basilica with the participation of a small congregation.
