CATHOLIC COMMENTARY ON THE NEWS
A SLAP IN THE FACE OF ALL PRACTICING CATHOLICS AND OUR HOLY FATHER
Just in time for his upcoming meeting with Pope Francis, May 24, President Trump has officially announced his intention to nominate Calista Gingrich as Ambassador to the Holy See.
With all the controversy surrounding marriage and divorce that the Vatican has been dealing with, this is only going to add to the “muddy waters” and add resentment to those who have legitimate concerns with Church teaching and practices when it comes to marriage, divorce, remarriage, and annulments….
Calista Gingrich is a life-long Catholic. She is Newt Gingrich’s third wife, married in private ceremony to Newt in 2000 after he divorced his second wife, Marianne. Newt had divorced his first wife, Jackie, when she was dying with cancer. He divorced his second wife Marianne soon after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis’ because he was going to run for president and thought Calista would get him there.
Callista testified in 1999 as part of Gingrich’s divorce proceedings that the couple began a six-year affair in 1993 while Newt was still married to his second wife, Marianne. Newt converted to Catholicism in 2009 and afterwards his two previous marriages were annulled.
Why is it always controversy with this President??? I don’t know and you probably don’t know either. But I am sure we all could think of many, many nominees to represent our country to the Vatican that would make better sense and be more respectful. WHY CALISTA GINGRICH???
PRAY FOR THE PRESIDENT, PRAY FOR THE USA!!!
Remember this is the same President that remarked last summer after Pope Francis said, “Christians don’t build walls; they build bridges!” That the Pope was disgraceful! (inferring he wasn’t Christian)
