Carrying a candle through the darkness, Pope John Paul II led a procession in St. Peter's Basilica as part of an Easter vigil Saturday evening. Thousands of worshipers lighted their own candles, and the packed church slowly filled with sparkling flames as the words lumen Christi, light of Christ, were intoned. Cardinals, bishops and priests walked in a long line behind the pope, who was dressed in gold-trimmed white vestments. When he reached the altar, a deacon chanted the proclamation of Easter.
