ABSTRACT
The article comments on the appointment of diplomat Francis Campbell as Britain's ambassador at the Vatican. Campbell is Britain's youngest ambassador, and both the first Roman Catholic in this post since the Reformation and the first Irish-born Catholic envoy since 1921. Campbell got the job by answering a newspaper advertisement. Although this is not one of the most high-profile appointments, supporters of this change insist the process used to fill the post sets a precedent that will be difficult to reverse. Campbell combines politics with strong religious convictions.
