The Coat of Arms of Pope Francis

I have noticed that a lot of page views have been recorded for my posting about some confusion about Pope Benedict's coat of arms, when a new banner was hung from the center balcony at St. Peter's Basilica, some time ago.  I apologize if some readers were expecting something about our new Pope's coat of arms.

To remedy the situation, here is the coat of arms being adopted by Pope Francis.  The National Conference of Catholic Bishops have some detailed information about on their website.  And the liturgical blog, Pray Tell, has some comparisons of papal coat of arms, both past and current.
