New Nuncio for the United States

The Holy Father recently named Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano nuncio to the United States. Archbishop Vigano, age 70, replaces Archbishop Pietro Sambi who recently died from complications from surgery.

The nuncio is a Vatican representative to the American bishops and has the rank of an ambassador. Because of this rank, he also has responsibilities to the American government in the Vatican’s behalf. He has previously served as ambassador for the Vatican to Iraq and Great Britain. He has served Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI in various diplomatic and governmental positions. 

We wish him all the best in this most important work in the Church and our country.
