What would Jesus wear?

Dear Editor:As I watched the funeral of a great man, the pope, some questions came to mind.I wonder what rules state what color robe someone wears? Does a certain color robe mean one is more holy? Or does it mean one has more power? Or does it mean one gets a special place in heaven? What about the funny-looking pointed hats they have on their heads? What do they mean?Read the “Gospel of Thomas,” that is found in the Gnostic Gospel, for this is what Jesus said: “Do not be concerned from morning until evening and from evening until morning about what you wear.”It appears to me that the Catholic Church is going against the teaching of Jesus by being so “concerned” with what is worn.Harry Temple IIIBasalt
