Pope to be called 'emeritus pope,' will wear white

Posted: Updated:

VATICAN CITY (AP) - The Vatican has answered some of the outstanding questions about Pope Benedict XVI's future once he's retired, saying he'll be known as "emeritus pope," and continue to wear a white cassock.
 
The Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said Tuesday that Benedict himself made the decisions.
 
The pope's title and what he would wear has been a major question ever since Benedict stunned the world and announced he would resign on Thursday. While he will no longer wear his trademark red shoes, Benedict has taken a liking to a pair of hand-crafted brown loafers made for him by artisans in Leon, Mexico and presented to him during his 2012 visit. He will wear them in retirement.
