Mr. Diaz Goes To The Vatican

Preparing to meet the Pope: a new American ambassador to the Holy See

Friday, May 29, 2009

President Obama has nominated Miguel Diaz, a Cuban-American theology professor from Minnesota, as the new ambassador to the Vatican. If confirmed by the Senate, Diaz will be the first Latino to fill this post. He will also be inheriting a position that has been vacant since the January departure of Mary Ann Glendon, a Bush appointee and a staunch abortion opponent. David Willey, BBC's Rome correspondent joins us with more.
