Newt Gingrich's Catholicism

 |  NCR Today

Amidst all the coverage of President Obama's Nobel win today, The Boston Globe posted online an interview with a completely different type of politician: Newt Gingrich.

In the interview Gingrich speaks with Michael Paulson, The Boston Globe's religion correspondent, on his recent conversion to Catholicism. Among the revelations found in the interview is the fact that Gingrich was personally shepherded in his faith journey by Msgr. Walter R. Rossi, the rector of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.

If only all people interested in the Catholic faith could find such personalized attention.
