At Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan, Cardinal Timothy Dolan led the faithful in a Holy Saturday Easter vigil mass — the church glowing with parishioners holding candles.

Cardinal Dolan reminded believers that Jesus still feels the pain of his people.

“Jesus is still being crucified,” Dolan said. “Jesus suffered and dies whenever any of his people suffer and die.

Earlier on Saturday, Dolan visited the Children’s Museum of Manhattan, where kids participated in an Easter egg hunt.

Dolan didn’t help them find the eggs, but came by to make sure everyone was having a good time.

In Rome, Pope Francis presided over a solemn late-night ceremony in St. Peter’s basilica, remembering the death of Jesus.

On Sunday, the pope will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus during Easter mass.

St. Patrick’s Cathedral is expected to be packed at the faithful attend mass throughout the day.
