The Vatican is planning to buy a garment in the event of a mass shooting at the Holy See.
The Vatican’s Vatican News Service reported Monday that Pope Francis would be wearing the garment when he attends the World Meeting of Families, the first of the Catholic Church’s annual World Meeting.
The garment is expected to cost between $50,000 and $75,000, and is designed to be worn over a pair of pants, according to the Vatican.
The news comes as the pope heads to California for the World Christian Prayer Breakfast.
The pope is scheduled to address a crowd of more than 300,000 people at the Anaheim Convention Center, where he’ll address the “spiritual, social, political, economic and ecological dimensions of human history,” according to his website.
“Our world today is one of war, persecution, and death,” the pope said, referring to the current wars in Syria and Iraq.
“The struggle against all forms of violence is part of this larger struggle against capitalism, the domination of capital, and the exploitation of the world’s peoples,” he added.
“We must also remember that the world is not only a place of war and conflict, but also an arena of spiritual, social and political development,” the pontiff said.
“This is what we believe in, that we must strive to become one people, under the rule of God and of the truth,” he said.
The clothing is the latest in a string of products the pope has made available.
The Pope also said in March that he plans to purchase a “bicycle, backpack, and backpacker’s backpack” in case he ever needs to go outside the Vatican, which would make him a “walking encyclopedia of the universe.”
The pope’s decision to purchase the backpack, however, drew criticism.
The Pope has also created a “pilgrimage,” or pilgrimage, to the Middle East.
He has visited Mecca and Medina, the holy sites of Islam, as well as the Vatican’s Basilica of Santa Marta, the holiest site in the world.
Pope Francis has also spoken out against violence and has made a point to address the plight of the poor.
“I am very concerned about the situation of the poorest of the homeless,” he told a conference in February, while also praising the efforts of poor people in the Vatican to get clean water.
He has also visited orphanages and the St. Vincent de Paul Society in Mexico City.
