(ANSA) – VATICAN CITY, FEB 17 – This year’s Lent and Easter
rites will feature the same COVID restrictions as last year,
when they were celebrated in virtually empty spaces, the Vatican
said Wednesday.
    “The celebrations on Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and
Easter Saturday will have the same indications as last year,”
said the prefect for the congregation for the divine cult,
Cardinal Robert Sarah.
    “We are still facing the drama of the COVID-19 pandemic which
has brought many changes to the usual way of celebrating the
liturgy,” he said.
    There will be no washing the feet by Pope Francis on Holy
Thursday or kissing the cross on Good Friday, while the faithful
will be restricted in number.
    “We must remain prudent”, said Sarah. (ANSA).
