During Holy Week and in the Easter season, the Vatican will take part in several initiatives highlighting the importance of ecology and the care for creation.

The Governorate of Vatican City State announced Friday that the thousands of floral arrangements for the Easter morning Mass and the pope’s solemn blessing “urbi et orbi” (to the city and to the world), will be repurposed after the celebrations.
