Look after these Catholics for Me, Wouldya?

I liked this line from the report on the BBC website about Pope Benedict's last day as Pope (I refuse to write "Pontiff" for the sake of elegant variation):

At 19:00 GMT he will cease to be the Pope. His deputy, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, will be in charge of the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics until a new pope is elected next month.

It makes it sound like he's stashing them in a shed.

Thank you, God, for Pope Benedict, and may he have a serene retirement!
