Pope Francis Celebrates Easter Sunday Mass of the Resurrection from St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican - FULL TEXT + Video



The Vatican provided a service in sign language, thanks to the “No One Left Out” project launched by the Dicastery for Communication. In place of a homily, Pope Francis led the faithful in silence of prayer after the proclamation of the Gospel of John (20:1-9), which was chanted in both Latin and Greek. The beautiful Easter floral arrangements in St. Peter’s Basilica for the Easter Mass were donated by florists from Holland and this is the 35th year in which they have done so. At the end of Mass, Pope Francis welcomed Cardinal Mauro Gambetti as the new Archpriest of the Papal Basilica of St. Peter. (Source: Vatican News)

St. Peter's Basilica - Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021

 Before concluding this celebration I would like to welcome the new archpriest Cardinal Fra Mauro Gambetti, Thanks for your availability, brother! I wish him the best in the service of this church that is so important to all Christians. And I would also like to thank Cardinal Angelo Comastri who, after 16 years as archpriest and at the age of 78, is leaving his post. Thank you very much Cardinal Comastri, thank you for your pastoral care, for your spirituality, for your sermons, for your mercy. The Lord pays for all your work. And I would like to thank all of you who have worked so that the celebrations of this Holy Week were worthy, beautiful, all, all! I thank all those who work here in St. Peter's, the choir, the altar servers, the readers, the deacons… Everyone! Thank you very much.
