Holguin (Agenzia Fides) - The Cuban Church is preparing for Pope Benedict XVI’s visit, which will take place from March 26 to 28. For this reason, the Diocese of Holguín has prepared a video that covers the preparation and the places the Holy Father will visit. The video, which will be broadcast from today on the Conference of Catholic Bishops of Cuba’s internet site, clearly presents the reason for the Holy Father's visit to the island: a pilgrimage to the Virgin of Cobre in the Jubilee Year. Santiago de Cuba, the Plaza de la Revolucion "Antonio Maceo", the Sanctuary of the Virgin of Charity, the palace of the Nuncio and the Plaza de la Revolucion "Jose Marti", are some places one can see in the video. There is also an interview with the Bishop of Holguin, Mgr. Emilio Aranguren Echevarria, who inderlines that the Pope is a "Pilgrim of Charity". (CE) (Agenzia Fides 18/01/2012)
