Pope Francis blessed Easter Basket for displaced families from Ukraine
Pope Francis blessed a very special Easter basket on Monday, April 11, 2022.
The Easter basket is representative of the 10,000 Easter care packages assembled by Knights of Columbus in Poland in recent days, which are being distributed to displaced families in Ukraine during Holy Week to help them celebrate Easter. Each package contains items including meat, flour, pasta, chocolate, and an Easter candle.
Sharing blessed Easter baskets is a special tradition in Eastern European countries, and the tradition takes on special importance this year.
