Pope Francis ushered Easter celebrations with a message of hope as he wrapped a bleak week in Europe.

Francis entered the silent and darkened St. Peter's Basilica with just a single candle guiding him at the start of the Easter Vigil service. As he reached the altar, the basilica's flood lights turned on in a symbolic show of light after the darkness of Jesus' crucifixion, foreign media reports.

The Pope is expected to offer a message of hope following his bleak condemnations on Good Friday and earlier of the attacks by Islamic extremists in Brussels and elsewhere.

“Terrorist acts committed by followers of some religions which profane the name of God and which use the holy name to justify their unprecedented violence," he said during the event.
