Pope Benedict XVI's New Title and Wardrobe

Pope Benedict has decided what he will wear once he is no longer Pope – a simple white cassock, and brown shoes given to him in Leon, Mexico. He will replace the Fisherman’s ring worn by Popes with an episcopal ring from his time as Cardinal Ratzinger.

After he resigns, he will have three titles: His Holiness Benedict XVI, Pope Emeritus or Roman Pontiff Emeritus. Visit this article from CNA to read more.
