Manila prelate to receive pallium on Dec 8

The pallium is a vestment made of white wool only worn by the pontiff and by archbishops

The Archdiocese of Manila will mark a historic event with the investiture of the sacred pallium on Cardinal Jose Advincula at the Manila Cathedral on December 8.

Archbishop Charles Brown, Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines, will confer the pallium on the cardinal on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The pallium is a vestment made of white wool only worn by the pontiff and by archbishops. The pope uses the pallium to symbolize the plenitude of pontifical office.

For archbishops, it signifies the authority given to them by the pope over their respective archdioceses, particularly their bond and shared responsibility with the pontiff to pastors in their regions.

Every year on the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, the pope blesses the pallium to be conferred to each new metropolitan archbishop at their respective archdioceses.

Cardinal Advincula was among the 34 recently appointed archbishops from around the world.

Pope Francis named the 69-year-old prelate as Manila archbishop on March 25, 2021.
