LIVE: Pope imparts 'Urbi et Orbi' blessing

Just like every other Easter Sunday, Pope Francis ascends the central balcony of St. Peter's Basilica to impart the 'Urbi et Orbi' blessing to the city of Rome and to the world.

The Pope only gives this blessing twice a year, on Christmas Day and Easter Sunday.

The broadcast begins at 12:00p.m. Rome time.
