Cuban cardinal sees his nation anxious for political change

Writing in Palabra Nueva, the cardinal said that a "form of national consensus" has developed, calling for an end to the era of rule by government bureaucracy, and the urgent calls for a change in the government's mode of operation are "producing impatience and unease among the people."
