Amazing scenes

I thought I’d share with you this Associated Press photograph taken on Friday, September 8, in Havana.

The caption reads: “Cubans watch a religious procession in honour of the nation's patron saint, the Virgin of Charity, in Havana, Cuba, Friday, Sept. 8, 2006. A statue portraying Cuba's saint is fastened on top and flowers decorate the sides of a circa 1950s American truck that cruised slowly through the streets as people sang and prayed.”

What the caption didn’t explain: the torturous relationship between the Castro regime and the Catholic Church. Read more about it here.
