"People who are against the (Castro regime) bring their dreams and their suffering and their pain. And those who support the government come here, too. The virgin brings them together. She's the mother of reconciliation."
Father Jorge Alejandro, a priest at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Charity del Cobre, near Santiago, as quoted by theInternational Herald-Tribune.
