Twenty-seven months in Regla

Present in more than 180 countries, the Mission of the Most Holy Redeemer resumed its work in Cuba some time ago, after, in the wake of the serious conflicts that arising with the Revolution, it was expelled in 1961. Forty years later, exactly on May 21, 2001, redemptive missionaries returned to this earth. On this second occasion they were entrusted with the parish of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores de San Nicolás de Bari, located in the town of Nueva Gerona, Isla de la Juventud. A few years later, in 2005, they assumed the parish of Christ the Redeemer in the Habanero municipality of Regla, and later, in the same year, the parish of La Medalla Milagrosa, in Guanabacoa. With tireless action, one of these brothers, Father Fulgencio Guerrero Castillo, Colombian, has seen everything during his stay in Cuba: cyclones, intense scathing, tornado, coronavirus pandemic…. But inspired by the maxim of helping the neediest, he keeps treasured stories that bring him closer to this earth and make him feel like one more of his children. […]


Resurrection Sunday Allocution

“Christ is risen, truly risen”. And to be a sure that the Son of God is reborn every day in our lives, Cardinal Juan de la Caridad García, Archbishop of Havana proposes to review the presence of Jesus in the daily life of a good Christian: “I experience that I am loved, I never feel alone, I feel great love for my brothers and sisters, I live the experience and culture of forgiveness. I’ve stopped fearing, even death. My king is love, I have peace and confidence and I transmit them, I always notice fresh the flower of hope. I feel in me a source of joy that is not exhausted. In my nights I always have a light, my sufferings already make sense by the cross. I am not seduced by the gods of the earth; the poor are my favorites, I’d rather give my life than take it away. I hope and advance the kingdom of life, I await the triumphant return of Jesus Christ, I glory on the cross. I only wait in Jesus.” If so, he says, “Christ is risen, truly risen.” […]

Reason for hope for the Cuban Church

One event that marked the recent celebrations in the Archdiocese of Havana was the priestly ordination of two permanent deacons, an unusual fact in the history of the Cuban Church. After more than forty years of marriage, and the departure to the father’s house of his loving wives, the present priests Luis Entrialgo Pintado and Maximus Jenes Isasi asked to serve God and the Cuban people through the priesthood in the last years of their lives.
