Good evening on a beautiful Easter Sunday. I hope you've been enjoying the day.
Appropriately, we will begin at the Vatican and the Easter service where there was a strong show of support for Pope Benedict amid the growing crisis in the Catholic Church and allegations of a cover-up. While the Pope spoke about the troubles facing Christians in earthquake-ravaged Haiti and Chile, as well as in Pakistan and Afghanistan, he avoided speaking to the thousands of victims of sex abuse, and did not publicly talk about the issues now surrounding the church. We will have a live report from Rome as well as take a look at how American Catholics are dealing with the issue while keeping their faith.
Then, got a clunker of a refrigerator? How about trading it in, a la cash for clunkers? In another attempt to boost the economy, the government is rolling out a cash for appliances program to try and get you to trade in the old washer and dryer for a more energy efficient appliance. But the question we'll explore is whether or not the program will work... or just provide a short term economic boost. But there may be a deal here for you. So be sure to watch.
And he's baaack... maybe. Tiger Woods getting ready to take to the world stage again when the Masters begins this week and tomorrow he'll be back in front of the cameras for a press conference. We'll have a preview of what's expected and whether or not the fans will follow.
Finally, a heartwarming New York story that is straight out of the movies, only this time... it was for real. A 2-year-old who was visiting New York fell into the frigid East River, and not just one, but two heroes jumped in to save her. The rescue was caught on camera and there is a little mystery involved. Stay tuned for Nightly News. See you tonight.
