What? No mint jelly?

Yesterday's Feast of St. Agnes meant another tradition took place. On this day each year, the Holy Father blesses two lambs whose wool will be used to make the pallia presented to newly appointed metropolitan Archbishops on the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul.

Despite the looks of the faces of Archbishop Harvey and Msgr. Gänswein in the background (who probably haven't had lunch yet), these guys aren't really destined for lamb chops (though one wonders what'd happen if we had a Pope of Greek descent?).
