Archbishop and his clothes.

*I am Catholic so there is not confusion*

I attended a charity event last night in which the Archbishop spoke. He was wearing a long black cloak with a smaller jacket type wrap around his shoulder. I think there was dark pink or red with a beanie on his head.

During his speech he said something about the many different clothes.

Does anyone know what the reasons are for what he wears? I know during Mass he has a stick and white robe with a hat. He takes off his hat during Mass and there is the beanie again

  • if you look through out history you will find that most religious leaders wore something on the head to cover. This is commanded although many have let it fall by the wayside and forget about t he masses, they just decided to take it all off. except those who follow
