(RNS8-APR24) Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano presents the papal fisherman ring to Pope Benedict XVI at the new pope's installation Mass. The fisherman's ring bears an image of Peter, his boat and his net, which figure in two Gospel accounts of miraculous catches of fish. Benedict said that while fish die when removed from the sea, ``in the mission of a fisher of men the reverse is true.'' See RNS-POPE-INSTALLATION, transmited April 24, 2005. Photo by Grzegorz Galazka.
