Los Angeles archbishop speaks on receiving pallium

Catholic World News - June 29, 2011

Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles spoke with Vatican Radio about the June 29 ceremony in which he received the pallium, indicative of the authority of a metropolitan archbishop and his ties to the Holy See. Archbishop Gomez said that the ceremony in Rome underlined “the unity of the Church.”

The pallium—a white woolen vestment worn across the shoulders during liturgical ceremonies—is conferred by the Pope upon newly appointed archbishops each year on the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul. Archbishop Gomez was receiving the pallium for the 2nd time; prior to his appointment as Archbishop of Los Angeles, he had served as Archbishop of San Antonio, Texas.

    This is a fine archbishop faced with a difficult task. We should all pray for him, whether in LA or not.
