Pope Francis wears a chasuble woven by indigenous hands

2015-07-07

(VIDEO ONLY) During the Mass that Pope Francis celebrated in Quito's Bicentennial Park, he wore a chasuble woven by native artisans from the Azuay province. The symbols on the chasuble include a lily, which represents Santa Marianita of Jesus, the first saint of Ecuador; and a Heart of Jesus, to which Ecuador is enshrined.

It is very similar to what Pope John Paul II wore when he visited the country in 1985.
