Vatican Releases Details Of Pope’s Installation Mass

VATICAN CITY (March 18, 2013)--The Vatican has released details of the pope's installation Mass on Tuesday as well images of his coat of arms and fisherman's ring.

In addition to more than 132 government delegations, the Vatican said 33 Christian delegations and representatives of the Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Sikh and Jain communities will attend.

The ring that Pope Francis will put on during the Mass once belonged to Pope Paul VI, and is made of gold-plated silver.

Francis' papal coat of arms is based on the same simple one as he had previously, with the symbol of his Jesuit order.
