The Bishops’ Conference of Cuba has launched a new website dedicated to the 400th anniversary of the devotion to Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre, the patroness of Cuba. The website will provide information on the three-year preparation for the anniversary.
In a message posted on the site, Archbishop Dionisio Garcia Ibanez thanked God for this new means of “remaining united in fraternal communion.” Likewise, the archbishop welcomed “Cubans and non-Cubans, pilgrims of the internet from all corners of the planet…to this place of encounter, prayer and dialogue.”
He added that the site would help people discover the “profound impression that Our Lady of Charity has left upon our personal history as Christians and also upon our personal history as Cubans. I invite you to get to know Jesus more, as that is the desire of his Mother, Mary, who lovingly presents him to us in her arms,” the bishop said.
