VIVA Raul!

VIVA Fidel!



 In case you missed it, Cuban President Raul Castro visited Papa Francisco yesterday at the Vatican. They spoke in Spanish. He went to thank the Papa for helping to get the U.S. to lighten up on Cuba!

Papa Francisco will visit Cuba in September en route to the United States.

Raul said at a news conference, “I read all the speeches of the pope, his commentaries, and if the pope continues this way, I will go back to praying and go back to the church, and I’m not joking.”

“I am from the Cuban Communist Party, that doesn’t allow (religious) believers, but now we are allowing it, it’s an important step.”

Speaking about Francis, Raul said he has been “very impressed by his wisdom, his modesty, and all his virtues that we know he has.”

I personally don’t see this as a one-sided deal. Not only has Raul benefited from the witness of Papa Francisco, but Francisco’s life has been informed and enriched by his knowledge of the 55 year experiment in Socialism by the Cuban people.

¡¡¡Esto es Evangelismo!!!

Por Brian Flagg,

¡VIVA Raúl!

¡VIVA Fidel!



Por si te lo perdiste, ayer el Presidente de Cuba, Raúl Castro visito al Papa Francisco en el Vaticano. Ellos hablaron en español. ¡El fue a agradecerle al Papa por su ayuda a mejorar el trato de los Estados hacia Cuba!

El Papa Francisco visitara Cuba en Septiembre en ruta hacia los Estados Unidos.

Durante una conferencia de prensa, Raúl dijo “He leído todos los discursos del papa, sus comentarios, y si el papa continua de esta manera, yo regresare a rezar y asistiré a la iglesia, y no estoy bromeando.”

“Yo soy del Partido Comunista Cubano, el cual no permite creencias (religiosas), pero ahora las estamos permitiendo, este es un paso importante.”

Hablando sobre Francisco, Raúl dijo que está “muy impresionado por su sabiduría, su modestia, y todas sus virtudes las que sabemos que él tiene.”

Yo personalmente no veo esto como un evento de solo un lado. No solo Raúl se ha beneficiado del testimonio del Papa Francisco, pero la vida de Francisco ha sido informada y enriquecida con el conocimiento de 55 años del experimento del Socialismo en las personas de Cuba.


One thought on “NOW THIS IS EVANGELISM!!!

  1. Now that the Pope has gotten the U.S. to lighten on Raul, maybe he can get Raul to lighten up on the Ladies in White – you know, the mothers and wives of political prisoners who get beaten up by the police every Sunday after mass.
