Pope Visits Mexico and Cuba

As Pastor of the Universal Church, there is no dispute that the Pope has to visit each local Church.  For centuries, Popes have traveled using the available technology.

The Pope has just visited Mexico and Cuba.  These are 2 Latin nations who suffer from political corruption but still maintain their faith and hope.

With the many chick ideas spreading all over the globe, it is important that the Pope visit nations and refresh the people's faith.

Mexico, the land where Our Lady appeared to St. Juan Diego is under heavy attack from secularism, the war on drugs, crime and other evils.  Cuba for over 50 years has suffered the oppression of Atheism and its communist propaganda.

Anyone who says Atheism and Communism are pro-human must visit Cuba and see the reality that it is not.  

However, these lands are not forgotten.  God has not forgotten the people of Mexico and Cuba.  They are important to Him and important to the Catholic Church.

It was great to see that Pope Benedict XVI asked Cuban president Raul Castro to make Good Friday and national holiday.  To the surprise of many, president Castro granted his request!  This was a surprise because the Cuban government is Atheist.  This shows that God's will always triumphs.


Take a look at the Pope's messages to the Mexican and Cuban people: http://www.ewtn.com/library/PAPALDOC/b16mexcubind.htm
