Pietro Parolin: The Pope helps us do our job, he doesn't complicate things

2013-12-06

"Buona Sera, buona sera.”

He has held his new job for just about a month. As the Vatican's Secretary of State, he's basically the Pope's right hand man

"I'm just starting off, so whenever you start something it's not exactly easy, especially when your job is so demanding as being Secretary of State.” 

His job may not be easy, but it is his area of expertise. Parolin has worked in the Vatican's State Department for 20 years, serving as a nuncio in politically charged countries like Nigeria, Mexico and most recently Venezuela. Now, the 58 year old is back in his native Italy, though he admits, Latin America has a special place in his heart.

Vatican's Secretary of State
"I'd like to send out a special greeting to all Latinamericans, I have very found memories of all the years I spent in Venezuela.” 

The Pope has laid out what he wants to accomplish during his pontificate. From social issues like poverty and unemployment, to more practical matters like the governance of the Church and its relationship around the world. That's where Parolin's background will directly come into play.

Vatican's Secretary of State
"It's very easy to work with Pope Francis. As everyone knows he's a very humble man who shows his closeness. Above it all, he tries to help us do our job, and not complicate things.” 

And so together with Pope Francis, Parolin will try to re-energize the Church and improve its management around the globe. 

ARCH. PIETRO PAROLIN
Vatican's Secretary of State
"With the help of God and with the support of Pope Francis, I hope to be able to accomplish this goal.”
