Vatican City, March 19 - The religious part of Pope
Francis's inauguration mass started on Tuesday when the new pope
prayed before St. Peter's tomb in St Peter's Basilica.
The Piscatory ring of the papal office was waiting for
Francis after this.
Francis, formerly Jorge Mario Bergoglio, chose a model of
Piscatory ring made of gold-plated silver designed by the late
Enrico Manfrini, who died in 2004.
The Piscatory ring, or Ring of the Fisherman, is typically
cast in gold for each pope.
The fact that Francis chose to have a silver ring has been
seen by many as a sign that he is aiming to be a "pope of the
poor".
The ring depicts St. Peter fishing from the side of a boat.
It served as the official signet to seal papal documents until
1842.
