Hundreds of pilgrims from the Philippines and Korea applauded when the Pope imposed the pallium on the young archbishops Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila, and Andrew Yeom Soo Jung from Seoul, South Korea.
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.
In addition to a symbol of unity with the Pope, it reminds bishops of their role as pastors and they should take good care of their flocks.
During today's ceremony, the Pope imposed the pallium on the 43 archbishops appointed during the past year.
