Vatican City, March 16 (TIWN) Pope Francis delivered a blessing over an empty St Peters Square as Italy remained in lockdown over the coronavirus pandemic.

Also on Sunday, the Vatican confirmed that Holy Week ceremonies would take place without the “physical presence of the faithful”.  It said until April 12, when Easter Sunday is celebrated this year, all the general audiences on Wednesday as well as Francis’s weekly Sunday noon prayer will be streamed online.
