The pope wears all kinds of different ‘dresses’ and ‘robes’ that are of different colors. The pope also wears hats, and sometimes the hats contain symbols on them such as a fish. He also wears a ring on his hand. This garb is generally symbollic to whatever ‘season’ it is within the catholic church. The season within the church will always denote what color th pope will wear in his traditional garb. For example, during the season of Lent, which is the Easter season in the Catholic Chruch, the pope as well as priests, will traditionally wear robes that are purple in color.
