    Background: One hundred thousand people thronged St. Peter's Square on Sunday (April 2nd) to receive Pope Paul's blessing -- and to her his annul Easter message.

    The message -- as is traditional -- was delivered from a balcony high above St. Peter's Square at the end of Pope Paul's main Easter Day mass. The Pope began his message by greeting the pilgrims in 17 languages.

    SYNOPSIS: One hundred thousand people thronged St. Peter's Square in Rome on Sunday to receive the Easter blessing from Pope Paul. They'd come from many lands--and stood quietly as the Pope conducted his main Easter Mass on the steps of the cathedral.

    Later the crowd was to hear the Pope send a message of comfort to those Roman Catholics living in countries where the churches are restricted and oppressed. The Pope proclaimed the happiness of the Easter message--and expressed hope for peace in areas where war, hatred, bloodshed and destruction prevail.

    Pope Paul gave his blessing from a balcony high above the square. And he delighted the multi-national congregation by extending Easter greetings to them in 17 languages.
