Topic - Tarcisio Cardinal Bertone
Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone has discussed the reform of the Roman Curia being carried out by Pope Francis, saying he trusts that it will be completed effectively.
Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, who was Vatican secretary of state from 2006 to 2013, has shared his views on papal diplomacy, emphasizing Pope Francis’ use of prayer in relations with states.
Starting his public farewell to his flock, a weary Pope Benedict XVI celebrated his final public Mass as pontiff, presiding over Ash Wednesday services hours after a bittersweet audience that produced the extraordinary scene of the pope explaining his decision to step down directly to the faithful.
"Let us remember, also,"
"It is a difficult journey, but I believe that Pope Francis is a man of decision, and so I believe he will succeed," Cardinal Bertone, emeritus secretary of state, told CNA March 7.
