Pope Francis’s Pectoral Cross is very different from those of the Popes that came before him. Instead of adorning himself with a golden cross covered with jewels, Pope Francis has chosen to wear a simple silver cross—the same one he wore when he was Archbishop and Cardinal of Argentina. The cross features a design of a shepherd and his flock of sheep, symbolizing Pope Francis’s role as caretaker of the faithful people of the world, his “flock.” Pope Francis’s simple, undecorated Pectoral Cross reminds us of his humble character and kindness.
