Pope May Visit Cuba As Part Of USA Trip
The director of the Holy See Press Office, Fr. Federico Lombardi, S.J., in response to questions from journalists regarding the possibility of Pope Francis visiting Cuba, has affirmed that “the Holy Father has taken into consideration the idea of making a stop in Cuba on the occasion of his upcoming trip to the United States.
However, contacts with the Cuban authorities are still in too early a phase for it to be possible to regard this as a firm decision or an operative plan”.
