In this photo provided by the Vatican paper L'Osservatore Romano, Pope Francis meets Argentine President Cristina Fernandez at the Vatican, Monday. Pope Francis' diplomatic skills were put to the test Monday as he met with Argentine President Cristina Fernandez, with whom he has clashed over her socially liberal policies and what he has called the government's totalitarianism. Fernandez called on the former Archbishop of Buenos Aires Monday at his temporary home, the Vatican hotel on the edge of the Vatican gardens, and the two later lunched together, a day before she and other world leaders attend his installation Mass in St. Peter's Square that some estimates say could bring 1 million people to Rome.

In this photo released by the Vatican Press Office Monday is shown the so called fisherman's ring, from the apostle Peter, who was a fisherman and the first pope, that was chosen by Pope Francis as the ring he will receive during the installation Mass. The ring is fashioned in gold-plated silver and was once a gift to Pope Paul VI, who presided over the second half of Vatican II, the church meetings that modernized the church. Pope Francis is mixing his Argentine past with his Roman present to create his new papal coat of arms, while harking back to a pope associated with the Second Vatican Council for the simple ring that he will receive during Tuesday's installation Mass.
