At a Mass in St. Peter's Square, Pope Benedict XVI is formally installed as the Catholic Church's 265th pontiff. The Mass, called "the ceremony of investiture," is celebrated by the senior cardinal deacon, Jorge ArturoMedina Estevez of Chile. During the Mass, the new Pope receives the symbols of his papal authority: the Fisherman's Ring and the pallium, a stole of white wool embroidered with six black silk crosses.

This has been given away free by Audible and is now a very poignant reminder of the pontificate of Pope Benedict XVl given his recent resignation. It is in itself an interesting historical audio record of one of the most moving events in the Catholic lexicon.
