Newt's Third Wife to be Vatican Ambassador

Callista Gingrich set to be named ambassador to the Vatican

Washington (CNN)Callista Gingrich, the wife of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, is the preferred nominee to be the next ambassador to the Vatican.

The White House hopes to announce her nomination before President Donald Trump meets with Pope Francis on May 24 in Rome.

The decision to nominate Gingrich has been made, but the announcement has taken longer than expected pending approval from the Office of Government Ethics, an administration official said.
The White House hopes to formally nominate Gingrich as soon as this week.

Gingrich is a devout Catholic, telling the Christian Broadcasting Network in a 2011 interview that she has "always been a very spiritual person."

Gingrich's husband was a close ally of Trump's during the presidential campaign and was considered for a Cabinet position, but decided against taking a role in the administration.

Soon after the inauguration, Newt Gingrich told CNN that Trump was considering his wife to be the ambassador to the Holy See.
"She's under consideration," Gingrich said.

The former Republican presidential hopeful would not elaborate further on the deliberation process at the time, simply saying he would be "very excited for her" if she were offered the position.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.

I don't know Roman Canon Law; but under Byzantine Canon Law a person is allowed no more than three marriages, meaning: a first marriage; a second marriage following widowhood or divorce; and a third marriage after yet another widowhood or divorce. 

No one is allowed a fourth Marriage.   I don't know about Callista, but Newt is on his third strike.

Life is an Orthros.

A perfect choice.  My second choice would have been Kate Jenner.
