Camagüey, Cuba, Feb 26, 2020 / 14:30 pm
Accompaniment for seminarians is critical in Cuba, a priest has said, reflecting that Cubans are "a tired people, a people without hope, it's a people that really feels helpless."
Fr. Alberto Reyes Pías, a priest of the Archdiocese of Camagüey and spiritual director for the archdiocesan seminary, told ACI Prensa, CNA's Spanish language new partner, that "The two words Cubans live with are survive or leave."
"There are a lot a people for whom the Church is the only thing that gives them some hope, gives them some meaning. There are lot of people going through an interior process in the Church, which gives them meaning."
Pias spoke to ACI Prensa at the Feb. 18-22 Night of Witnesses event organized by the pontifical foundation Aid to the Church in Need in Mexico to draw attention to persecuted Churches.
