Liberal Becomes Nuncio in Italy

Pope Francis named Swiss born Archbishop Emil Paul Tscherrig, 70, as the new nuncio to Italy and San Marino. Tscherrig, who until now was nuncio in Argentina, is the first non-Italian to hold this position. As a young priest, Tscherrig started off as a fairly Catholic man, but in the meantime he has increasingly shifted toward secular liberalism and to positions dear to Pope Francis.
