Papal Dinasty in Saint Paul Outside the Walls

In Saint Paul Outside the Walls, there is a painting for each Pope, from Saint Peter to Benedictus XVI. The reigning Pope's painting is illuminated by a spotlight that creates a suggestive atmosphere. In the image you can see, next to Benedictus XVI, the empty socket for the image of his successor.


I wonder what happens when the sockets will end.
