(CNN)Pope Francis led Easter mass in St. Peter's Basilica on Sunday, in a scaled-back event due to Covid-19 precautions.

Sunday marks the second year in a row that Easter crowds have been prevented from gathering at the Vatican due to the global pandemic.

All papal services this year are being attended by about 200 people in the secondary altar of St. Peter's Basilica.

Easter Sunday is the most important day in the Christian liturgical calendar and marks the day Christians believe Jesus rose from the dead after being crucified on Good Friday.

This year, Francis will deliver the blessing from the altar of the basilica to prevent worshipers crowding into the piazza.

At an Easter vigil on Saturday, Francis said he hoped the dark times of the pandemic would end and that people could rediscover "the grace of everyday life. "
