Pope Castro Cuban

March 28, 2012 by staff 

Pope Castro Cuban, Pope Benedict XVI wrapped up his visit to Cuba on Wednesday with a huge open-air Mass before hundreds of thousands of people in the shrine of the Cuban revolution, hoping to revive the Catholic faith in this communist-run country and press for greater freedoms for his church.

Pope Benedict XVI waves to faithful as arrives to lead a Mass at Revolution Square in Havana. It was a message he was likely to repeat at his other appointment Wednesday: a meeting with Fidel Castro.

The multitudes gathered in Revolution Plaza for the morning Mass, shielding themselves from the blistering sun with umbrellas and waving flags big and small as Benedict passed by in his white popemobile. President Raul Castro and leading Cabinet officials had front-row seats, wearing white formal guayabera shirts.
