Archbishops who attended pallium Mass struck by sense of unity

Archbishops who attended Mass with Pope Francis as he blessed their woollen palliums said they were struck by a sense of unity.

Archbishop Anthony Fisher of Sydney said that since the pallium “is a sign of the communion between the pope - the bishop of Rome, and the major archdioceses around the world”, the Mass and blessing showed “that we are a church of churches, that we have all these areas, regions around the world, but we are all one church united through the ministry of Peter, the pope”.

Seeing archbishops from so many different countries showed “how the Lord is working in all these people and all these cultures. It’s just so beautiful to see it come together”, said Archbishop John C. Wester of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Archbishops Fisher and Wester were among 46 new archbishops representing 34 different countries who came to Rome to concelebrate Mass with the pope in St Peter’s Basilica on the feast of Sts Peter and Paul on 29 June. All were named to their archdioceses over the course of the past year.     [Full Story]
