Pope Francis and the Pallia...

Did you notice that Pope Francis, for Sts. Peter and Paul, went back to the ordinary modern pallium which all the metropolitan archbishops wear?

So, in the space of about 10 years we have seen the longish, archeologizing pallium first used by Pope Benedict (probably a creation of Piero Marini).

Not my favorite. Benedict left that one, portentously, on the tomb of Pope Celestine V.

And then Benedict went to a transitional historic pallium.

Francis used that until now.

So, we are back where we started.

 

I, for one, am glad to see it back.  For how long?  Who knows.  He might get rid of it all together before he resigns at 80.

"And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and people, this journey of the Church of Rome, which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood.

I will now give my blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will."

-Papa Francis quote

He does not know you, yet he prays for you.
He will most likely never meet you, yet he loves you.

This is your chance to show your love, for as the Bible teaches, "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."
