“Cuban President Raul Castro has promised to attend all Pope Francis’s masses when the pontiff visits Cuba. Castro said he may even go back to praying and church if “the pope continues to talk as he does.”
The talks between the Cuban leader and the pontiff in Vatican were strictly private and lasted for about an hour.
According to Cuban and Vatican officials, Castro made a stop in the Vatican on the way back from Moscow’s V-Day celebrations to thank Pope Francis for his mediation between the US and Cuba.
“I thanked the Pope for what he did,” Castro told reporters as he left the Vatican, adding he was “really impressed by his wisdom and his modesty.”
“When the pope goes to Cuba in September, I promise to go to all his masses, and with satisfaction… If the Pope continues this way, I will go back to praying and go back to the church, and I’m not joking,” the Cuban leader said, AP reported.
Castro’s willingness to go back to church cuts across his political beliefs.
“I am from the Cuban Communist Party, which doesn’t allow [religious] believers,” he said. “But now we are allowing it, it’s an important step.”
Following the Cuban Revolution in 1959, the authorities restricted religious practice. In the 1990s, Havana adopted a milder position towards confessions and lessened the promotion of atheism. Later, Pope John Paul II visited the island in 1998, and President Fidel Castro, who served from 1959 to 2008, reinstated Christmas as a holiday.
Pope Francis unexpected hero of US-Cuba relations breakthrough
Castro presented Pope Francis with a painting by contemporary Cuban artist Kcho (Alexis Leiva Machado) which was inspired by the pontiff’s commitment to bring the plight of migrants and refugees to the attention of the wider world.
Francis, in his turn, gave Castro a medal depicting St. Martin of Tours, one of the most familiar and recognizable Christian saints.
“With his mantle, he covers the poor,” Francis told Castro.
In December 2014, the Vatican revealed that the 78-year-old pontiff had contributed to US-Cuba negotiations, “resulting in solutions acceptable to both parties.”

Pope Francis added that he would continue to be supportive of the reconciliation process. It emerged that he had sent a personal letter to both US President Barack Obama and Castro during the summer of 2014.
“Pope Francis sent letters to President Obama and to Cuban President Raul Castro this past summer, urging a resolution of the matter of prisoners and progress in our bilateral relationship,” US Ambassador to the Vatican Kenneth Hackett said.
The Vatican was also responsible for playing host to meetings between Cuban and US officials.”
And remember all roads lead to Rome. The vatican has been responsible for many meetings in the past.
Now with his protege in charge, Pacelli pushed for the Nazi Party to accelerate its transformation. Soon after being appointed Führer, Superior General Wlodimir Ledochowski provided Jesuit priests to Adolf Hitler in 1921 to establish a paramilitary wing to the NSDAP to be known as the Sturmabteilung (SA) also known as Storm Troopers first headed by Ernst Röhm.
Using the gold provided by Pacelli, the Nazis secured the first recruits of the SA who were then trained by the Jesuits in espionage, counter intelligence, assassination and propaganda.
In 1923, Hitler was ordered by Pacelli to emulate Mussolini and “march on Berlin” to overthrow the Government, starting with Munich. However, the Nazis were less organized and met stronger opposition than the Italians and never made it out of Munich.
I mean how sweet is this, one brother of two dictators, atheists, and bingo the pope speaks up for him, cut him some economic slack, the pope will come to visit him and he will now begin praying. Does this not seem funny to the normal human mind? Who is Francis going to redeem next, Charles Manson?

Fidel Castro was born in the village of Brian in Cuba on August 13, 1926 into a rich family, the son of Angel Castro, who was a Spanish immigrant, and his cook Lina Ruz Gonzalez. In his early life Fidel Castro went to Jesuit schools and from there he attended the Jesuit preparatory school Colegio Belen in Havana.

Controlled Opposition. Fidel Castro was trained in Jesuit schools for seven years, put in power by the Jesuit’s Knights of Malta-controlled Skull and Bones CIA, and advised by a Jesuit, Fr. Armando Llorente during the revolution. Today, Castro continues to be subservient to 78th Grandmaster and Prince of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta Andrew Willoughby Ninian Bertie, cousin of Queen Elizabeth.
The life of Fidel Castro has always been bound up with prophesies, some of them strangely accurate. Probably the most known is the one made by [Jesuit] Father Antonio Llorente, Castro’s teacher and spiritual adviser at the [Jesuit] Colegio de Belén. “Fidel Castro is a man of destiny,” prophesied Llorente. “Behind him is the hand of God. He has a mission to fulfill and he will fulfill it against all obstacles.” In this particular case, however, I have the feeling that Father Llorente was slightly confused about whose hand was behind Fidel Castro.

The original German prince Bernhard has confessed that he flew around the world without a flight license and he was linked to Nazism. Thus he came more than once to Bariloche, where he stayed in the most expensive hotel of Argentina, Llao Llao. In Bariloche he met regularly with Jorge Zorreguieta, the father of princess Maxima. King Willem Alexander and queen maxima gladly go (to see here) skieën at San Carlos de Bariloche on the mount Cerro Cathedral. Up until 1996 Jorge had a holiday house that was burned out, now it has been reported he has a new holiday house in Esch.
Martin Zorreguieta is a brother of queen maxima and son of María del Carmen Cerruti and Jorge Zorreguieta and he manages the villa drawer angostura restaurant in Tinto Bistro. The restaurant lies only seven kilometres from Inalco. The queen maxima educated by German nuns in the Colegio Mallinckrodt in Buenos Aires worked in its vrijgezellenleven for Dresdner Kleinwort Benson bank and just like aforementioned Ludwig Freude for Deutsche Bank. The family Zorreguieta apparently have a craze for everything that is German.
No one thought so until the release of the FBI documents. It seems that it is possible that the most hated man in history escaped war torn Germany and lived a bucolic and peaceful life in the beautiful foothills of the Andes Mountains.
