Standing in the window of the library of the Apostolic Palace overlooking an empty St. Peter's Square, March 29, 2020, Pope Francis blesses the city of Rome, which was under lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Italy's new COVID-19 restrictions over the holidays have forced some changes to Francis' Christmas schedule. (CNS/Vatican Media)
