Vatican Pope Easter
Vatican Swiss Guards parade in St. Peter's Square ahead of Pope Francis' Easter Sunday Mass in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican Sunday, April 20, 2014. Even before Mass began in late morning, more than 100,000 tourist, Romans and pilgrims, young and old, had turned out for the Mass. Many more streamed in throughout the ceremony, and the broad boulevard leading from the square to the Tiber river filled up with the faithful and the curious, trying to catch a glimpse of the pontiff at the altar under a canopy erected on the steps of St. Peter's Basilica.
