Pope Francis blesses two lambs to mark the Feast day St. Agnes

2015-01-21

With crowns of white and red flowers, these two lambs followed tradition, as they were blessed by Pope Francis

Every year, on the Feast Day of St. Agnes, the Pope blesses these animals in what has now become a staple celebration in the Vatican.  The white flowers symbolize the purity of the Roman Saint. The red ones, her martyrdom.

The lambs remained calm throughout most of the ceremony....but not all. 

Wool from these lambs will be used to make the palliums new Metropolitan Archbishops will receive from Pope Francis when they are ordained archbishops on June 29th.
