"It's eight o'clock. It's time to take care of this responsibility.”

Once inside the building members of the Apostolic Chamber prayed for the future Pope, before sealing off the papal apartments.

"Give your Church a worthy Pope.”

Accompanied by Mons. Angelo Becciu who serves as the Substitute Secretariat of State, the group proceeded to seal the papal apartments.

Cardinal Bertone officially sealed off the Papal apartments with the help of a notary.

A member of the Swiss Guard was waiting outside the office. Sealing off the papal apartment is not just a tradition, it's also listed under Canon Law to prevent any type of forgery.
Now the Catholic Church is waiting for the successor of Benedict XVI, who from now on will be known  as Pope Benedict XVI emeritus.
