What’s behind the Pope’s Tour to Cuba and the US?
Saturday September 19 began Pope Francis’ visit to Cuba and then, to the United States. The tour will include some important meetings, such as a meeting with Fidel Castro, a meeting with Barack Obama, and other historic visits. Pope Francis will also become the first pope to address the US Congress. As the Pope’s spokesman said, the tour will be one of the “longest and more complex”. The Pope seeks to strengthen the influence of the Vatican on Cuban "openness" and to rebuild the image of the Catholic Church in the eyes of the major world power, the United States.
