VATICAN CITY - Pope Francis is to celebrate his first Easter vigil after praying for peace in the ME and stronger Christian-Muslim dialogue at a torch-lit ceremony for Good Friday. The newly elected Argentine pope will preside over a mass at St Peter’s Basilica, baptising four adult converts - an Albanian, an Italian, a Russian and an American. The ceremony will wrap up a series of intensive preparations leading up to Easter Sunday - the holiest day in the Christian calendar - by the first non-European pope in nearly 1,300 yrs. Thousands of people are expected at mass when the pope will issue a special blessing from the same balcony of St Peter’s Basilica where he appeared on the night of his election.
