ROME (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Easter celebrations got underway in Rome Sunday morning.
Pope Francis is celebrating the holy day with Easter mass at the Vatican.
Saturday night, the Pope held a service at St. Peter's Basilica, baptizing four men as part of the ritual.
Traditionally following the holy week, which ends Sunday, the Pope would travel to the Papal retreat for a vacation.
That won't be happening this year, however, as Pope Benedict is currently living there in retirement.
