You may have seen that the Holy Father has a new ferula, in place of the older one from the time of Bl. Pius IX.
Pope Benedict began his pontificate using the staff of the late John Paul II. Then he changed to the more traditional ferula. Now he has his own ferula.
He is a shot from 1st Vespers of the 1st Sunday of Advent in the Vatican Basilica.
OH! And nice mitre there, too!
