Among the 43 archbishops who today received the pallium from Benedict XVI, two came from Mexico. The first is the Cardinal Francisco Robles Ortega, the Archbishop of Guadalajara. The second is Jesús Carlos Cabrero Romero, the Archbishop of San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
The pallium is a band of lamb's wool the pope personally delivers each June 29, on the feast of St. Peter and St. Paul, to the archbishops that were appointed over the past year.
In addition to a symbol of unity with the Pope, it reminds bishops of their role as pastors and the need to take care of their flocks.
