ARCHBISHOP GIUSEPPE SENSi, whose appointment as Papal Nuncio to Ireland has been announced by the Holy Sec, moves to Dublin front one of the most difficult diplomatic posts in the world.
Italian-horn Mgr. Sensi, whose appointment comes two weeks before his 55th birthday, has been Nuncio in Jerusalem since 1957 a post which called for exceptional tact and diplomacy because of the Vatican insistence that Jerusalem should be an international city, and that free travel to the Holy Places should be preserved.
A member of the Vatican Diplomatic service for the past 23 years, Mgr. Sensi has served in Bucharest, in Berne, and in Brussels. In 1948 he became Chargé d'Affaires to Prague but after a year there returned to the Vatican Secretariat of State. In 1953 he became the Vatican's permament Observer at UNESCO. Immediately before being transferred to Jerusalem, Mgr. Scnsi served for two years as Apostolic Delegate in Costa Rica.
Archbishop Scnsi succeeds Archbishop Riheri who has been appointed Nuncio in Madrid.
