The pope's wardrobe

So far, Pope Francis has seemed to make symbolic choices in what he wears, like the simple iron cross he's worn since he was appointed bishop, and black shoes, rather than the red ones favored by his predecessor. For Francis' inauguration mass this week, he wore a chasuble, mitre and pallium -- but there are indeed different articles of clothing that popes wear for different seasons, or in different traditions. (Benedict XVI was known as a clothes horse because of the vestments he resurrected.) We spoke with Father Edward Beck, a CNN contributor and Roman Catholic priest of the Passionist Order, to find out more about the pope's wardrobe.
