A new pallium

Archbishop Peter Smith, recently installed as Archbishop of Southwark (and therefore my Ordinary) received the pallium this morning from Pope Benedict XVI during the Mass celebrated at St Peter's for the feast of St Peter and St Paul. This is his second pallium, since he was formerly Archbishop of Cardiff.

Here is a photo of Archbishop Longley (right) wearing his new pallium as Archbishop of Birmingham:


Please remember Archbishops Smith and Longley in your prayers.
