Pope Francis Gets Lamb's Wool Scarf
March 22, 2013

Catholics and the curious flooded St. Peter's Square this week to greet Pope Francis on the day of the ceremony to officially install him as pope. 
 
A formal procession to the steps of St. Peter's Basilica was followed by the formal presentation to Francis of the pallium - a lamb's wool scarf symbolizing Jesus as the good shepherd - and the fisherman's ring, a specially cast, gold-plated silver symbol of St. Peter's role as a fisherman.
