The man whose photograph you are seeing here is the one to hold forte until a new Pope is elected for the Catholic Church. Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone was the deputy to Pope Benedict XVI, whose resignation took effect yesterday. Cardinal Bertone will be in charge of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics until a new Pope is elected later this month.

Born December 2, 1934, Bertone is an Italian prelate and a Vatican diplomat. “A cardinal of the Catholic Church, he currently serves as Cardinal Secretary of State and Camerlengo, having previously served as Archbishop of Vercelli from 1991 to 1995, as Secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, when Cardinal Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI, was Prefect, and Archbishop of Genoa from 2002 to 2006. Bertone was elevated to the cardinalate in 2003. On 10 May 2008, he was named Cardinal-Bishop of Frascati,” says Wiki.

Pending the next Pope’s election, Bertone will serve as administrator of the Holy See and acting head of state of the Vatican City State.

Pope Benedict XVI is the first pontiff in 600 years to step down, citing health reasons. He left the Vatican on his final day as Pope saying he “will simply be a pilgrim” starting his last journey on earth.

The 85-year-old pontiff was flown by helicopter to the papal retreat at Castel Gandolfo, near Rome.
