In an interview with The Vatican Times the new President of the European Union Herman Van Rompuy promised that he would do nothing relevant during his presidency.
He said that he had a firm agreement with the Pope to remain as obscure as possible in his capacity as president to allow the real decision-makers to play the game.
Asked who were the real decision-makers Mr Van Rompuy touched his nose with his right index finger twice and smiled.
The new President will start a tour of Europe next week which is estimated to last about five years.
Tony Blair was in tears regretting that he did not convert to catholicism earlier and that he thought it was a good idea to tell the Pope last year that if elected President he would create a "New Europe".
