3 yrs ago on this date we were in Paris and had the blessing to go to Notre Dame and join Catholics there praying for the newly elected Holy Father at a candlelight prayer service. What a wonderful and memorable experience that was. The church was full. It certainly left an impression on me that there are Parisians with a very deep spiritual commitment to Christ and the Church.

I tried to find an article that explained the reason for kissing the Pope's ring (and other bishop's) but couldn't. Could you clarify for me (and maybe others)? The memory I have is that as a child I was told the rings had embedded in them a relic of the True Cross and that was part of the reason for kissing the rings--the other, of course, being respect for the office of the pope or the bishop/cardinal. Yet when I tried to find a source that backed this up, I could not. Thank you.
