Vatican releases pope's Mass details, motto

Posted:
VATICAN CITY (AP) -

The Vatican is releasing details of the pope's installation Mass on Tuesday as well images of his coat of arms and fisherman's ring.

   In addition to more than 132 government delegations, the Vatican said 33 Christian delegations will be present, as well as representatives from Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Sikh and Jain communities.

   The ring that Pope Francis will put on during the Mass once belonged to Pope Paul VI, and is made of gold-plated silver.

   Francis' papal coat of arms is based on the same simple one as he had previously, with the symbol of his Jesuit order.
