CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmiero, the retired president of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts (2007-2018), said that there has been “an evolution in mutual understanding” between the Church and Freemasonary, and wondered “if it’s not possible to think about a permanent discussion, even at the official level,” according to Il Messaggero.

The prelate took part in a closed-door meeting between Catholic and Masonic leaders in Milan.
