Vatican City, August 30 - Pope Francis is set to
replace the Vatican's powerful Secretary of State Tarcisio
Bertone, Italian daily Corriere della Sera said on Friday.
Bertone will be replaced by archbishop Pietro Parolin who is
currently the Holy See's representative in Venezuela.
The official announcement will come on Saturday, the paper
said.
Bertone will remain president of the Commission of
Cardinals until December when a progress report by the Council
of Europe's MONEYVAL Committee on anti-money laundering
procedures will be issued for the Vatican Bank, formally called
the Institute of Religious Works (IOR).
Bertone, who was appointed secretary of state during
Benedict XVI's papacy, is said to have been a divisive figure
within the Vatican and was widely seen as the target of the
so-called 'Vatileaks' campaign involving confidential Church
documents leaked to the press by the pope's butler last year.
