ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Huge crowds of pilgrims gathered in St. Peter's Square on Monday (April 17) to see Pope Francis recite the Regina Caeli prayer on Easter Monday. The pilgrims broke into cheers and applause as Francis appeared in the window of the papal apartments overlooking the square and greeted them before reciting the prayer. On most Sundays throughout the year, the Angelus prayer is recited - a prayer that reflects on Jesus' incarnation. Throughout the Easter season however, the Regina Caeli is recited which focuses on Jesus's resurrection.
