Old, New Papal Style

At yesterday's Pallium Mass, Pope Francis returns the use of the standard style of the Pallium.

The style Pallium has evolved throughout the course of Papal history

Pope Saint John Paul II wore a much longer Pallium during the Jubilee Year of 2000. Can any of the readers send a picture of the Pope wearing that?  It is similar to this. 

Pope Benedict XVI had to Pallium designs during his entire Pontificate


  1. I think Pope BXVI's pallium still suits better than the older one. Although that being said, i find nothing wrong in the older pallium that Pope Francis has worn a few days ago.

  2. I actually saw this on your older post. I really thought I saw this somewhere.
