Callista Gingrich said to be next US Ambassador to the Holy See

Fr. James Martin, S.J. of America Magazine reports on his Facebook site that Callista Gingrich is said to be the administration's choice for US Ambassador to the Holy See.
Mrs. Gingrich is a life-long practicing Catholic. Her husband, Newt Gingrich, converted to Catholicism following their marriage.
It is further said that Newt Gingrich, husband of Callista, has been lobbying for his wife's appointment since January.

Fr. Martin discourages "ad hominem" comments on his Facebook site.
