September 20th, 2015, Pope Francis made a trip to Cuba. While he was there he made a visit to Fidel Castro in his home. According to the Pope, this meeting was “informal and friendly.” While in his home, they exchanged three books. One being a book of sermons by Castro’s old teacher and also was given a book called “Fidel and Religion,”
It appears as though there is a new revolution taking place in Cuba and it may be one of religion. Pope Francis held a hominy in Havana. During this he stated that “service is never ideological, for we do not serve ideas, we serve people.” His hominy was not just to create a stir within the Cuban people, but those in Columbia.
Pope Francis is to travel to the United States and apparently ties between Cuba and the U.S. have been “thawed” because of him.
