Travels with the archbishop

Can't get over to Rome this summer? That's OK. You can be there in spirit by checking out Detroit Archbishop Allen Vigneron's new blog, which chronicles his visit to the Eternal City. He's there to receive the pallium — a circular stole made of lamb's wool that signifies his role as shepherd of his flock. (Click HERE to read Catholic News Service's story about the symbolism and history behind the pallium.) On June 29, the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, Pope Benedict XVI will place a pallium around the necks of prelates who have been named to head an archdiocese in the past year.  
In a June 25 posting, the archbishop recalled his visit to several of his old haunts from the days when he was seminarian at the North American College.
