At Mass for Cuba’s patron, bishop asks for prayers for ‘island in agony’ | Crux Now

Archbishop Jerome Lloyd OSJVPosted by

Bishop Felipe J. Estevez, of the Diocese of St. Augustine, Florida, called on Cubans, on and off the island, to choose forgiveness to help the island nation, during a Sept. 8 homily marking the feast of Cuba’s patron saint, Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre. As a mother, “La Cachita,” the familiar name Cubans have given to the Virgin Mary as Our Lady of Charity, knows what her children need and she knows “there is something that worries us and that steals our peace, something that saddens us, that distresses us,” said Estevez during an outdoor Mass in Spanish at the Shrine of Our Lady of Charity in Miami.
