Pope Francis, 87, will preside over the Easter Vigil service after missing the Good Friday procession due to health reasons. The Vatican confirmed that the Pontiff declined the event to preserve his health. The Easter Vigil service is one of the most important moments in the Catholic liturgical calendar and commemorates the resurrection of Jesus. Pope Francis has been battling respiratory problems throughout the winter months, making it difficult for him to speak at length. Despite his health issues, he will also preside over a morning Easter Mass and deliver a speech praying for an end to global crises.
