Catholic commentator regrets Pope's decision not to meet anti-Castro leaders

Catholic World News - March 28, 2012

Unable to join a group traveling to Cuba during the papal visit because the Castro regime denied him a visa, Robert Royal of the Faith and Reason Institute comments from a distance on the debate over the Pontiff's failure to meet with anti-Castro dissidents during his 3-day stay:

Benedict has a deep understanding of the historical forces at play in the world, and he’s nobody’s fool. But if he does not meet with dissidents, he will reinforce the impression--not wholly mistaken--that the institutional Church in Cuba has compromised itself.
