Castro set to welcome papal visit to Cuba
CWN - December 20, 2011
Cuban President Raul Castro has announced that his government will greet Pope Benedict XVI “with affection and respect” when the Pontiff visits early next year.
Castro met on December 28 with a Vatican delegation making plans for the papal visit. Pope Benedict himself announced plans for the trip last week. The Vatican has not yet provided exact dates for the visit, but a December 20 announcement said that the Pontiff would be in Cuba in “at the end of March.”
