ARCHBISHOPS PALLIUM ON FEAST OF SS. PETER AND PAUL
VATICAN CITY (CWNews.com) - Thirty-seven archbishops of 22 different countries will receive pallium from the hands of Pope John Paul II on Tuesday, during a Mass in St. Peter's Basilica.
This ritual of the bestowal of the pallium, consisting of a broad collar made of lamb's wool and worn around the neck by the pope and archbishops, always takes place in Rome, near the Confession of St. Peter, on the feast day of Ss. Peter and Paul. It is a sign of communion of new archbishops with the Successor of Peter.
Among the 10 European prelates, in addition to the
archbishop of Turin named Saturday, Archbishop Severino
Poletto, four French archbishops will receive pallium:
Archbishop Louis-Marie Bille of Lyon, Archbishop Andre
Vingt-Trois de Tours, Archbishop Claude Feidt of
Aix-en-Provence and Archbishop Francois Saint-Macary of
Rennes. Africa will be represented by 7 new archbishops,
including three in Uganda. For Asia, there will be one
prelate from the Philippines and three from India. For the
Americas, there are two Canadians and 14 Latin American
