Whispers has an article on Bertone's replacement announced yesterday: Archbishop Pietro Parolin, the nuncio to Venezuela (along with some other curial appointments [e.g. Archbishop Georg Gänswein stays as the prefect of the Papal Household.). Lumen Fidei has a detailed biography of the new State Secretary of His Holiness Pope Francis, en ESPANOL.
N.B. Check out Sandro Magister's masterful article (in Italian) on the role of the Secretary of State and the perfect Secretary of State: the Spaniard Cardinal Rafael Merry del Val, the genius of a diplomat tapped by Pope Saint Pius X.
Cardinal Merry Del Val is the author of "The Litany of Humility."
