VATICAN CITY (Zenit) - Benedict XVI will bestow the pallium on the 34 metropolitan archbishops named in the last year, including five from the United States, two from Canada and one from the United Kingdom.

The ceremony will take place in St. Peter's Basilica on Monday, feast of Sts. Peter and Paul.

The pallium, worn by the Pope and archbishops, symbolizes the lost sheep that is found again, carried on the shoulders of the Good Shepherd, and the Lamb crucified for the salvation of humanity.
