Pope Celebrates Palm Sunday Services In Empty St. Peter's Basilica

Pope Francis marked a surreal Palm Sunday in an empty St.

Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican on Sunday.

The Holy Father urged people living through the coronavirus pandemic to be less concerned with what they lack but how they can ease the suffering of others.

The service kicked off Holy Week events leading to Easter.

Normally, the service attracts tens of thousands of people to a St.

Peter’s Square bedecked with olive and palm trees.
