Virgin of Charity is small, but powerful enough to bring a pope to Cuba

Full story: The Washington Post

EL COBRE, Cuba - She's 400 years old and stands just over a foot tall, but the petite wooden statue housed in a small-town church in eastern Cuba is among the most powerful Catholic icons in the world, and an object of pride and reverence for hundreds of thousands of island faithful.

I am not into these religious hocus pocus symbols but am glad the Pope is in Cuba just for the fact that it ticks off many of the old right wing junta that I know.

Sinceramente te digo de que tu tienes un problema enfermizo con eso que tu llamas The Miami Junta!Yo quisiera que me explicaras que tiene que ver esa supuesta junta con la Virgen de la Caridad! Es sacar continuamente lo de esa junta o lo de los politicos de Miami en cuanto topic aparece,lo que hace es quitarle seriedad y
y credibilidad a tu posicion!Yo puede estar de acuerdo contigo en parte sobre lo de los politicos,pero la continua repeticion en topics que nada tiene que ver con el topic,sinceramente te digo que te hacen lucir como un nino con una perreta y desmerecen tus posiciones,pero bueno es solo mi mas sincera opinion y consejo!Saludos!

Acabo de ver la llegada en vivo del Papa a Santiago mediante mi conexion a un satelite que me permite ver en vivo 4 canales de la TV Cubana!Pude ver su lkegada,su discurso y recorrido por las calles de Santiago y su recibimiento multitudinarrio por parte del pueblo Santiaguero el cual me emociono muchozn
Los mantendre informado de todo lo que pueda ver en vivo por CubaVision!Dentro de unos minutos dara una misa en la Catedral de Santiagp,mansna ira a ls Ermita de La Caridad del Cobre y rlel Miercoles celebrara una misa es La Plaza de La Revolucion(La Plaza Civica como se llamaba antes de la dictadura Castrista)!

Yet another "powerful" statue to worship? Gee, Mary sure travels a lot! Why can't she sit her rear end still for a while? She does more work than Jesus does it seems.

I think they should just get it over with and start calling her Goddess.

Yet you seem to have no fear nor concern about the staggering Miami Cuban political corruption and incredibly low standards.

What a sad reflection on the MAJORITY Cuban politicos and officials.
