Mass of the Installation of Pope Francis

Below are pictures form the Installation Mass of Pope Francis held today in Rome on the Solemnity of St. Joseph.  The program for the Mass can be found on the Vatican website.  It is officially The Solemnity of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Imposition of the Pallium, the delivery of the Fisherman's Ring, and Holy Mass at the beginning of the Petrine ministry of the Bishop of Rome, Francis.  

I was able to secure a seat in the clergy section near the front.  Below are the pictures from Mass today:
