Former U.S. ambassador: Vatican's 'soft power' helpful in diplomacy

 | 

Last week on "Interfaith Voices," I interviewed Francis Rooney, U.S. ambassador to the Vatican from 2005 to 2008 under President George W. Bush. Rooney has written a book called The Global Vatican, which provides an interesting history of relations between the U.S. and the Vatican since the founding of the United States.
