Callista Gingrich likely to be named ambassador to Vatican

The wife of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is a devout Catholic.

Gingrich, a former congressional aide who is now an author and president of a multimedia production company, considers herself a devout Catholic. She's also a member of church choir at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.

CNN was the first to report that Gingrich is under consideration for the ambassador position. Her husband Newt Gingrich, a Trump supporter, had been considered for a position in the Trump administration.

Louis L. Bono is temporarily serving as the chargé d’affaires to the Holy See until a permanent ambassador is confirmed.
