Cuba's Ambassador to the Holy See 
"There's the meeting between Fidel Castro and John Paul II and well as meetings with different cardinals. Then there's the Pope's visit to Cuba. The Mass he celebrated in Santiago, Camaguey and of course there's also Benedict XVI's visit and his Mass in Santiago and La Habana.”
