Rome is the center of the Catholic world, the home the pope, the city of St. Peter. Easter time draws enormous crowds of faithful to participate in the high holiday services and be blessed by the pope himself.

But this year, Easter is cancelled. Or almost. Easter services will still be performed in the Vatican and churches around the city, but unless you're a priest, an organist, or a deacon, you're not allowed to go.

What will Easter in Rome (and around most of the world) be like this year, since we are all stuck at home. Tiffany in Rome and Katy in Seattle ruminate on just that in this week's mini-episode.
