Spanish bishop to evaluate results of aid sent to Church in Cuba

.- The director of Caritas Spain, Bishop Alfonso Milian of Barbastro-Monzon, announced he would attend the General Assembly of Caritas Cuba, which will be held February 1-4, in order to become acquainted with the work being done on the island thanks to the collaboration between the bishops’ conferences of the two countries.
 
In an interview with the newspaper “Diario del Alto Aragon,” Bishop Milian underscored the importance of the Caritas Cuba gathering, which will also be attended by the President of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum, Archbishop Paul Josef Cordes.

Bishop Milian said he was pleased to be attending the event and that to be able to witness a Church that is blossoming even amidst immense difficulties would be of great “personal satisfaction.”

Referring to the aid Caritas Spain sends to Cuba, the bishop stated, “Archbishop Cordes asked us give us much help as possible to assist the elderly and people who live in poverty and difficult conditions.”  He revealed that during the Assembly, “new homes built with this assistance will be inaugurated.”
