New CNA video shows where Pope will visit in Cuba

.- With help from the local Diocese of Holguin, CNA launched a video outlining the places where Pope Benedict XVI will visit in Cuba when he travels to the country March 26-28.

Pope Benedict will visit Cuba as a “pilgrim of charity and a pilgrim of faith,” said Bishop Emilio Aranguren of Holguín, who provides commentary in the video.   

The short film begins with images of the Shrine of Our Lady of Charity in Cobre, which the Pope will visit on March 26 to mark the Jubilee Year for the 400th anniversary of the discovery of the Marian statue in Nipe Bay.

It then travels to the Antonio Maceo Revolution Square in Santiago, where the Pope will celebrate Mass on March 26 and where Blessed John Paul II celebrated Mass in 1998.

Viewers will also catch a glimpse of the Apostolic Nunciature in Havana and Revolution Square, where the Pope will celebrate Mass on March 28, the last day of his visit.

“The Church in Cuba has led a preparatory mission for three years for the Jubilee Year,” explained Bishop Aranguren. “The Pope’s visit is part of this program and the Pope will be a pilgrim.”
