.- Some 300,000 holy cards of the Child Jesus were distributed throughout Cuba as part of the “Missionary Christmas” campaign, helping hundreds of thousands of Catholics to celebrate the Christmas holiday with greater joy.

This was the second year that the campaign has taken place, with the holy cards being distributed in eleven dioceses, according to Father Raul Rodriguez Dago of the Diocese of Santa Clara.

The missionaries who distributed the holy cards, which were provided by Aid to the Church in Need, also gave families a short catechesis on the faith.

“The missions took place during the morning, when the Child Jesus was received by stay-at-home moms involved in their daily activities,” Father Rodriguez explained.

“We thank God for allowing us to have this experience of the Missionary Christmas for the second year in a row,” he continued.  “May His blessings reach all those who generously made the pictures and all those missionaries who donated their time, effort and dedication to distribute them to homes.”
