"Receive the Ring...."
Yet again, the photo comes from the superlative David Ryan of the Boston Globe, whose images have tag-teamed with Michael Paulson's words to provide a chronicle of these blessed days which have been, to a post, simply superb. Kudos to them both for un lavoro belissimo fatto!
As you can see, the bas-relief of the crucifixion used for cardinalatial rings in the pontificate of John Paul II has been retained... for now.
