    Pope Benedict XVI talks to Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr of Cincinnati after presenting him with the pallium. (CNS/Paul Haring) By Cindy WoodenCatholic News Service VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Placing a woolen band around the shoulders of 38 new archbishops, Pope Benedict XVI told them it was a Gospel "yoke" -- not a heavy burden, but a sign that by remaining united with the church in faith, they will have the strength to face whatever challenges come their way. "Communion with Peter and his successors, in fact, is the guarantee of freedom for the pastors of the church and for...

    VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Receiving the woolen pallium from the pope underlines an archbishop's unique ties to the vicar of Christ in Rome and to his own flock of parishioners back home, said a number of archbishops from the United States and Canada. The pallium "strikes me as somewhat of a wedding ring -- that we are intimately bound to our people -- our sheep -- as shepherds," said Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York, "and we're also bound to the universal pastor of the church, Pope Benedict XVI." Archbishop Dolan was one of 34 bishops from 20 countries...

(CNS photo/Reuters) Today is the feast of St. Agnes, a Roman martyr, and it’s the day the pope traditionally blesses two lambs raised by Trappist monks near Rome.The lambs are sheared and the wool...

    VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Placing the pallium, a woolen band, around the shoulders of 46 archbishops from around the world, Pope Benedict XVI prayed that they would be true shepherds of their flocks and always united with the pope.

    Pope Drops Papal Crown From Coat of Arms, Adds Miter, Pallium By Carol GlatzCatholic News Service VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- The papal crown has been given the boot once again, this time no longer appearing as part of the new pope's coat of arms. Pope Benedict XVI has dispensed with the image of the three-tiered tiara that traditionally appeared at the top of each pope's coat of arms and replaced it with the pointed miter. The pope also has added the pallium, the woolen stole symbolizing a bishop's authority, to the elements surrounding the shield. The details of the new...
  • Pope Benedict XVI Receives the Pallium

    But what does it mean?Folks, Pope Benedict XVI was solemnly installed today in an impressive Divine Liturgy celebrated today at St. Peter's Square. Symbolism and substance took precedence today as Pope Benedict received a "pallium" of the kind that were in use earlier in Rome, which differs somewhat from the modern version (pictured left). Pope John Paul the Great was invested with the "modern" pallium more than 25 years ago.Check out this picture of the same moment at Pope John Paul the Great's installation back in October, 1978. According to the article in the Catholic Encyclopedia, "There are many different...

    Back on March 3rd, there was a post about a VOTF letter writing campaign and a recommendation to have our own campaign in support of Archbishop Burke prior to his receiving the pallium at St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican on June 29. The recommendation received included this:I think we should have our own letter-writing campaign. Let's tell the Apostolic Nuncio Bishop Gabriel Montalvo and Archbishop Burke that he has our 'trust and backing' by virtue of his track-record in the Cold North, and that VOTF St. Louis is the tiny voice of a self-described faithful which doesn't speak for...

    As thousands of pilgrims and tourists watched, Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan was the first of 40 new archbishops from around the world to receive their palliums - the stole-like symbol of authority - from Pope John Paul II at an outdoor Mass Sunday in St. Peter's Square."I went up and knelt in front of him, and he put the pallium on me, and then he said, 'Pax vobiscum,' peace be with you," Dolan said in a telephone interview afterward from Rome. "And I said, 'Et cum spiritu tuo' (And also with you). And he looked at me and...
