The Holy See’s new representative in Italy recently presented his credentials to President Sergio Mattarella.

Archbishop Emil Paul Tscherrig, 71, previously served as apostolic nuncio in Burundi (1996-2000), in 12 Caribbean nations (2000-04), in South Korea and Mongolia (2004-08), in five Scandinavian nations (2008-12), and in Argentina (2012-17).

President Mattarella told the prelate that he is in harmony with the Pope on the issues of immigration, refugees, poverty, unemployment, and human trafficking. Archbishop Tscherrig (in the words of a Vatican newspaper summary) paid tribute to the “great generosity manifested by Italy in the reception of the refugees, an expression of the profound humanitarian and Christian tradition of the nation.”
