Et dimissis peccatis vestris, perducat vos ad vitam aeternam. Benedicat vos omnipotens Deus. Amen.
~ The Pope

The Pope was an unnamed man who served as the Vicar of Christ. He leaded all the Vatican & Italian Catholics in a mass prayer, standing on the balcony at St. Peter's Basilica. He was killed with his fellow cardinals, the Italian Prime Minister, and most of the Catholics attending the prayer when an earthquake destroyed the church.


  • It is unknown who portrayed him as he was not seen face to face, though it is probable that this was Pope Benedict XVI (as it does read in the original script for the film.)
