Pope Benedict XVI has now officially retired from his role as Pope and this has meant a few rules have had to change.
He is the first pope to retire in 600 years, so new rules have had to be drawn up for him.
Vatican officials have announced the Pope will change his name, the clothing he wears and where he lives. He will also be unable to tweet under the @Pontifex username.
Pope Benedict XVI will now be known as “pope emeritus” when he retires. ‘Emeritus’ is a Latin title used for people who have retired from an important job. He will still be known as Benedict XVI, instead of his birth name which is Joseph Ratzinger.
He will also have to dress differently, and hand back the ‘fisherman’s ring’. This is a gold ring that is made specially for each pope and they wear it on the third right finger.
Officials say he will still wear white, but without any special trimmings. He will also have to wear different shoes.
The Pope normally wears specially made red loafers, but when he retires he will wear a pair of brown shoes.
