Vatican City, March 19 - Pope Francis was presented
with the Piscatory ring, or Ring of the Fisherman, by Cardinal
Angelo Sodano after entering St Peter's Square for the
inauguration mass of his papacy on Tuesday.
Francis chose a model of Piscatory ring made of gold-plated
silver designed by the late Italian sculptor Enrico Manfrini,
who died in 2004.
The Ring of the Fisherman is usually 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 the "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.
