Below is the full text of Pope Francis' Easter Blessing (thanks to Vatican News):
Dear Brothers and Sisters, a Happy and Holy Easter!
St Joseph is a very special, and often overlooked Saint. Adopted father of Jesus and husband to Mary, Joseph was the protector of the Holy Family. Joseph showed mercy to Mary when he didn't understand how she came to be with child. He ensured that Jesus had a safe place to be born, and that Mary and Jesus had a safe place to live their lives.
