Moments before he died, a nurse who was taking care of him throughout revealed what the pope did and his last words. According to Archbishop Georg Ganswein, the priest simply expressed his love to Christ before he died.

"With just a whisper of a voice, but in a clearly distinguishable manner, said in Italian: 'Lord, I love you!" he said.

Gänswein admits that he was not there when the words were spoken, but the nurse told him after the Pope died. He added that those were his last comprehensible words because he was not able to express himself again afterwards.

Benedict XVI will be interred in the Vatican crypt in the same spot where Pope John Paul II was buried before his beatification.

Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni confirmed the site of Benedict’s tomb to journalists on Jan. 2, the first day the pope emeritus’ body was laid in state in St. Peter’s Basilica.
