Pope's Cuba message long on faith, short on politics

Pope Francis walks alongside US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama upon arrival at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, on September 22, 2015, on the start of a 3-day trip to WashingtonPope Francis stuck mainly to religion during his visit to Cuba, steering clear of delicate topics like democratic reforms and human rights — and risking criticism from some at his next stop, Washington. Francis’s US-Cuban trip is the most high-profile of his papacy so far, and carries added symbolic weight given his role in helping broker the old Cold War foes’ recent rapprochement. Francis did urge Cuba to continue down the path of “reconciliation,” a message that encompasses both the ongoing negotiations with the United States and the formerly atheist state’s gradual reopening toward the Church.
