Secretary Bertone and the Traditionalist Question

Il Giornale reports today that Cardinal Bertone, the new Secretary of State, has some interesting words to say in his interview to the current issue of the magazine 30 Giorni (which is not currently available in their website):

"If, from the Lefebvrist side, there is a sincere will to reenter into full communion with the Holy See, it will not be difficult to find the adequate ways to achieve this result."
The Cardinal remembers his own experience as an aide to Cardinal Ratzinger during the 1988 discussions with Archbishop Lefebvre:

"A very demanding and interesting experience, even if the results were not positive. But the discussion is now reopened, especially after the historic audience granted by Benedict XVI to Bishop Bernard Fellay in the past year."
