Pope Francis is wearing a collar on his head and neck that is supposed to be a fatherly sign of affection for the faithful.
The collar, made from a wool fabric, has a wooden cross at its base that has been decorated with various symbols of the Church’s traditions, including flowers and images of saints.
The Pope wears the collar while he is at the Vatican.
It is an icon of love that is part of his legacy, the Pope said during a video message to the faithful at the end of last month.
The pope also wore the collar at a recent meeting of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences.
He is seen on the cover of the magazine in a black suit, tie, white shirt and tie.
The pope is wearing the collar during his weekly Mass at the Shrine of St. Peter and the Apostle in the Vatican, and the collar is part the “St. Peter-Santiago” cross that Pope Francis and the pontifical council of bishops, the Vatican’s top court, have created to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of Pope Julius II.
In the video message, Pope Francis said the collar was made by his father, the late Cardinal Marcelo Marcinkus, who was a Franciscan priest.
The collar, which was worn by Pope Julius from 1929 until his death in 1981, is now being sold by the Society of Jesus.
Marcinkus is remembered by the Church for his devotion to poverty and poverty relief, his devotion for children, and his role in bringing the Church to the people.
Pope Francis wears the “Father of the People” collar while at the St. John Lateran basilica in Rome on Feb. 2, 2018.
The “Fathers of the Kingdom” collar is a cross that has a gold crown and a star at its center.
It was worn during his visit to the Vatican in January.
Marcin Kudyński, a priest and director of the Society for the Promoting of the Divine Economy, told The Associated Press that the collar has “one very important role.
It represents the Father of the Saints and it represents the Pope.”
He said it was the first time the collar, with its red cross, was worn in the papal wardrobe.
The Father of Saints collar is worn during Pope Francis’s visit to St. James in Rome, Italy, on Feb 22, 2018, on a visit that has focused on poverty relief.
It is made from wool and it is very soft and comfortable, Kudyski said.
The Vatican has also made a similar collar, this one made from plastic and is sold for about $250.
