Cuban Bishops: We longed for this moment for years


People will remember December 17th as one of those moments when history is made. On that day, the US and Cuban governments announced that their diplomatic relations will be re-established. Pope Francis played a key role in normalizing them.

Secretary, Cuban Conference of Catholic Bishops
"I think we all must be deeply thankful to Pope Francis. Maybe I'm still emotional about this. But, if any Pope had to come now to Cuba, it should be Pope Francis.”

Cuban bishops are hopeful. The division that separated both countries for more than 50 years began to disappear in a day.

Secretary, Cuban Conference of Catholic Bishops
"I think that today all Cuban bishops will rejoice, because they could witness a moment they've been longed for for years.”

But not just the Bishops are excited with all that's happening. All of Cuban society thinks the new changes are for the best. 

Secretary, Cuban Conference of Catholic Bishops
"All the Catholics I've met since the announcement are visibly happy. As far as I know, none of them thought it was inconvenient. Quite the opposite.” 

Both Barack Obama and Raul Castro thanked Pope Francis for his help during the negotiations between the two countries. The Cuban bishops believe that a visit of Pope Francis to the island would give them the change of showing him their gratitude face-to-face.
