Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby presented Pope Francis with a silver Cross of Nails Oct. 5 as a symbol of their partnership in the work of reconciliation. Welby took the pectoral cross from round his neck and presented it to Pope Francis during vespers at San Gregorio al Celio in Rome, which they led jointly. The pope then put the cross round his neck. The pope presented Welby with a replica of the pastoral staff of Pope St. Gregory.
