Callista Gingrich to be Vatican Ambassor

CALLISTA GINGRICH CONSIDERED LEADING CANDIDATE FOR VATICAN AMBASSADOR

(CNN) – The wife of Newt Gingrich is the leading choice to become the next ambassador to the Vatican.

A nomination of Callista Gingrich could come this week, pending approval from the office of government ethics.

The White House would like that to happen before president Trump’s meeting with Pope Francis in Rome later this month.

Mrs. Gingrich’s husband is an ally of the president, supporting his run during the campaign.

The former House Speaker said after the inauguration that his wife was being considered for the Vatican ambassadorship.

Callista Gingrich is a devout catholic, and said in a 2011 interview she’s “always been a very spiritual person.”
