The Holy See has a new Secretary of State, in case you haven't heard. John Allen's Word from Rome column this week has a profile of Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the new Secretary. An excerpt:

Bertone is a staunch conservative on doctrinal issues, and a man with a very positive and optimistic spirit. In true Salesian fashion, he is good at youth ministry, and has made outreach to the young a priority in Genoa. One of his first outings as archbishop was to a local disco, where Bertone was photographed on the dance floor. He has also taken a few turns at providing color commentary during broadcasts of Italian soccer matches.

Seems like things will be getting interesting at State.
