Yes. He looked rather nervous and a bit shy at the beginning, I thought. I found myself unexpectedly warming to him at that point, it seemed a very human reaction. He seemed to relax more as the ceremony progressed until by the time he was doing the Popemobile bit he looked as if he was really enjoying it. That is the bit that for me stands out most vividly: he looked so much happier and to my mind somewhat younger than he'd done at the start of the ceremony. (Though part of that could well have been relief that the major and most public part was coming to an end.)

Thanks, Mystery Worshipper, Mother and Baby Clanger for the report on the new Pope's first service. I really enjoyed reading it. There was a wonderful mixture of reverent worship and homeliness, which is just how I imagine Jesus was - and all of us, really, who try to follow Him. Thanks again!

Well folks,

Those of you who were waiting for a coronation either now or in the future can forget about it. If BXVI's coat of arms is an indication at all, a triple tiara won't be in use any time soon. Even JP2 had retained it as part of the design above his shield but HH's new arms only display a mitre above and a palium (old style!) below.

Speaking of the Papal coat of arms, I saw a picture of BXVI in the paper this morning; the banner below his window still displays JPII's arms.

I'd have thought the Vatican would have produced a new one by now. Perhaps the new arms haven't been devised yet?

Thanks for the additional information, Sacristan.

Was he using JPII's arms because the Vatican hasn't had a chance to run up a new banner with his own?

That would seem the only logical reason.

Wossisname remarked that the fishermans ring was a replacement for the Tiara. Not so, it originally was engraved with the papal seal and was used to make impressions on sealing wax for important papal documents. Pallii plural of pallium are made from the wool of lambs harvested on St. Agnes day and are given as a sign of Archiepiscopal authority. Some have relics in the pinheads holding it in position on the chasuble. And yes, the Vatican didn't have a new banner for Papa Ratzi as they wouldn't have known what coat of arms he desired - unless the election was a fiddle - and that could never happen now, could it?

Minor editorial point on MW1008: The "Did anything distract you?" section is not set off in red and is currently shown as part of the "What musical instruments were played?" section.

'Pallia' in Latin, I think you'll find.
