PALLIUM MASS Pope Francis presents a pallium to Archbishop Leonard Blair of Hartford, Conn., during a Mass marking the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican June 29. Archbishop Blair was among 24 archbishops from around the world to receive the pallium, a woolen band worn around the shoulders that symbolizes an archbishop’s authority as shepherd and his communion with the pope. Archbishop John Nienstedt received his pallium during a similar Mass at the Vatican in 2007. CNS / Paul Haring
