  Pope - LoveToKnow 1911
Hence the pope, as supreme in matters of doctrine, possesses the same authority and the same infallibility as the whole Church; as legislator and judge he possesses the same power as the episcopal body gathered around and with him in oecumenical council.
Over this costume the pope wears, on less solemn occasions, the lace rochet and the red mozetta, bordered with ermine, or the camauro, similar to the mozetta, but with the addition of a hood, and over all the stole embroidered with his arms.
The pope's liturgical costume consists, in the first place, of all the elements comprising that of the bishops: stockings and sandals, amice, alb, cincture, tunicle and dalmatic, stole, ring, gloves, chasuble or cope, the latter, however, with a morse ornamented with precious stones, and for head-dress the mitre (see Vestments).

Pope is derived from the Greek word pappas, "father", and was originally used in an affectionate sense of any priest or bishop (in the exact same way that modern priests are addressed as "Father").
The Fisherman's Ring was first mentioned in a letter of Pope Clement IV to his nephew in 1265 wherein he mentions that Popes were accustomed to sealing public documents with leaden "bullss" attached, and private letters with "the seal of the Fisherman" (by the XV Century, the Fisherman's Ring was used to seal Papal briefs).
Theoretically, the Pope's death is officially determined by the Cardinal Chamberlain by gently tapping the late Pope's head thrice with a golden hammer and calling his name (it is not clear when this ceremony ceased to be observed, as it does not appear to have been practised in the twentieth century at all).

The Fisherman's Ring is placed on the newly-elected Pope's finger by the Chamberlain of the Holy Roman Church; on the Pope's death, the Cardinal Chamberlain smashes the Fisherman's Ring with a hammer, symbolising the end of the late Pope's authority.

 SYMBOLUM.NET - Church of Rome
Historically the official residence of the pope was the Lateran Palace, donated by the Roman Emperor Constantine; the Lateran Palace and Castel Gandolfo are integral parts of Vatican City.
It is the pope's ecclesiastical jurisdiction (the "Holy See") and not his secular jurisdiction (Vatican City) that conducts international relations; for hundreds of years, the pope's court (the Roman curia) has functioned as the government of the Roman Catholic Church.
The pope derives his pontificate from being bishop of Rome but is not obligated to reside in Rome; according to the Latin formula ubi papa, ubi curia, wherever the pope resides is the central government of the Church, provided that the pope is bishop of Rome.

 Prophecy on Pope Fulfilled by Eclipses?
In an eerie coincidence, John Paul II was the only known pope to be born on the day of a solar eclipse.
Pope John Paul II will be buried this Friday during another solar eclipse.
The description applied to the 110th pope on his list - John Paul II - is "De Labore Solis" (Of the Solar Eclipse), which seems to add great weight to the validity of St. Malachy’s chilling prophecy: that the next two popes chosen to succeed John Paul II will be the last popes.

 History of the Mass (4histort.htm)
From good popes who were striving to do God's Will to rascal popes who had no business even wearing clerical robes, Holy Mother Church was plunged into a darkness that coincided with the dark ages and the feudal system throughout Europe.
So desperate were the people and popes to cling to their "man" and their agendas that the papacy lost much prestige and respect as Rome teetered on the edge of the next century.
But Formosus was not a single-minded pope for he also turned his attention to the East where, in 892, he attempted to heal the schism between the Eastern and Western Churches, but it was too deep to mend.

 The Commonplace Book of Zadok the Roman
Through the centuries, popes and church councils were careful not to define limbo as a doctrine of the faith and to leave the question open.
Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict, was president of the commission and head of the doctrinal congregation when the commission began studying the question of limbo in a systematic way in 2004.
The Pope, dressed in his bright red robes, was joined by the college of cardinals also resplendent in their crimson vestments for the Mass, led by cardinal Angelo Sodano, the Vatican secretary of state.

Prior to being elected pope, Cardinal Ratzinger was the head of the "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith", commonly called the "Office of the Inquisition".
The one that applies to the 18th century Pope Benedict XIV translates to ''rural animal'' — an odd appellation for a man who was one of the most scholarly and sophisticated occupants of the Chair of Peter.
Underneath, the pope is dressed in his traditional white robe, in the best tradition of Zarathustra; even though a man's head is blocking a key portion of this picture, other pictures of the pope lying in state clearly show this white robe extending beyond the bottom edge of the red robe.

Of this pope very little is known with certainty, not even the date of his birth nor the exact dates of his consecration as pope and of his death.
He was born at Gallese near Civita Castellana, and was the son of Constantine.
It is possible he was deposed by one of the factions which then distracted Rome, for we read that "he was made a monk", a phrase which, in the language of the times, often denoted deposition.

 Prophecies of St Malachy---Concerning the Popes
The pope who then follows this choice in the Chair of St. Peter will be the last pope, and after his reign Rome will be destroyed.
The corresponding pope was John Paul I (1978-78), who was born in the diocese of Belluno (beautiful moon) and was baptized Albino Luciani (white light).
Again the name accords often with some remarkable or rare circumstances in the pope's career: thus Peregrinus apostilicus (pilgrim pope), which designates Pius VI, appears to be verified by his journey when pope into Germany, by his long career as pope, and by his expatriation from Rome at the end of his pontificate.

In the early part of the present century, when the revival of interest in Aquinas inaugurated by Pope Leo XIII was reaching its full vigor, certain ecclesiastical authorities decided that it would be useful to express Aquinas' philosophical principles in the form of short theses or propositions.
Pope Leo wanted to steer Church thinking away from the fascination with the apparent that had captivated European thought in the modern period, and we can see in retrospect that his initiative promoted a flowering of Catholic intellectual life.

Then again we may toast the new pope with a Martini--a Cardinal Martini, that is. He is the previous Archbishop of Milan and noted Biblical scholar who now lives in Jerusalem for half of each year.
It is traditional for a pope in his final years of life to appoint his successor as Archbishop of Milan, the largest Catholic Archdiocese in Italy.
The inclination to a conservative or progressive future pope depends on whether the College of Cardinals meeting in the conclave seek to sustain John Paul II's conservative agenda.
