Chilean Cardinal, Jorge Medina Estévez, died on Oct. 3. He was the bishop of Rancagua and Valparaiso. Pope John Paul II created him a cardinal in 1998.

He played several important roles in the Holy See. One of them was announcing the name of the new Pope to the world after the 2005 conclave.

The Cardinal was over 80 years old, which is why he was not eligible to vote in conclaves. With his death, the total number of cardinals falls to 215.
