.- The international organization Aid to the Church in Need is distributing five thousand copies in Cuba of the Prayer for the Family written by Archbishop Emeritus Pedro Meurice Estiu of Santiago, as a tribute to his long years of service.
The president of ACN, Hans-Peter Rothlin, stressed the importance of the initiative. “Cubans love holy images and symbols, but they have very few images and devotional objects,” he explained.
He said the pamphlets were an appropriate means of evangelization and of reminding Catholics of the teachings of the Church on the family. “With a strong family, the Cuban people will be able to overcome any problem,” Rothlin stated.
The initiative has the support of current Santiago de Cuba Archbishop Dionisio Garcia, who expressed his determination to continue with the work in support of the family started by his predecessor.
