Havana.- In his message to the Cuban people during Sunday's mass, Pope Francis said human beings should serve one another and not ideologies. He said: “The importance of the people and nations is measured by the extend to which they are willing and ready to serve others. Those who don't put their lives at the service of others, do not lead lives worth living.”

Camagüey.- Who would have thought that in less than two decades the cayman of the Caribbean Sea would be visited by three Pedro's descendents of the last years?

Then, perhaps for it, it has been visited by St John Paul II and Benedict XVI, and now by Pope Francis.

Camagüey.- The auxiliary officials of the Army of Salvation, captains Luis Pupo Batista and Luisa Maria Reina Gómez, both from Holguin, joined in the faith and in marriage for over 18 years, realize their mission “that is to share Jesus's gospel” in Camagüey already for one year, and they are ruled for the maxim of the Council of Churches of Cuba of being “one so that the world believes”.

Havana.- Cuban President Raúl Castro is at the José Martí Revolution Square, attending a mass by visiting Pope Francis.
