Archbishop Demands End of Cuba Blockade

Archbishop Norberto Rivera

The Archbishop of Mexico City, Norberto Rivera, has demanded an end to the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba by the United States, noting that now is not the time for a barricaded world.
Opening an exhibition for the Virgen de la caridad del Cobre, Cuba's patron saint, at the Metropolitan Cathedral, the cardinal emphasized the historical attitude of this country in regard to opening its doors to its neighboring country and maintaining diplomatic relations.

The exhibition includes 50 works of art created by Cuban artists, which will remain on display for a month in the basilica of this capital. The ceremony was attended by staff of the Cuban embassy accredited here.

"It is very significant for us because the Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre and Our Lady of Guadalupe have been with us for over 400 years, and have also functioned as a symbol, and a national symbol, for believers and nonbelievers," emphasized Rivera.

This exhibition opened in December last year in Havana and later traveled throughout the island as part of the celebrations for the 400th anniversary of the discovery of the image of the Virgin.
