The “Pallium Lambs”

I posted a couple of days ago about St. Agnes. I mentioned that on that day, the pope blesses two lambs that will provide the wool used to make the pallia given to all archbishops.

The Catholic News Service has an article about this that provides interesting details. Take a look! Did you know that Trappist monks on the outskirts of Rome raise these animals? That Agnes is derived from the Latin (agnus) for Lamb?
