Vatican-watcher Sandro Magister of L'Espresso, who has been critical of Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone's performance as Secretary of State, provides a detailed critique in his latest column. He contrasts the blunders of the Vatican bureaucracy in recent years with the polished performance of a legendary Secretary of State, Cardinal Rafael Merry del Val, who served under St. Pius X.
