Pope Benedict XVI gives Castros a foretaste of visit

The Telegraph:

Speaking days before the first papal visit to the Caribbean dictatorship of Cuba in 14 years, Pope Benedict XVI said: “Today it is evident that Marxist ideology in the way it was conceived no longer corresponds to reality.”

On the plane taking him from Rome for a five-day trip to Mexico and Cuba, he said that the 53-year-old communist system in Havana “can no longer respond and build a society”, and called for “new models” to replace it.

Pope Benedict offered the help of the Church in achieving a peaceful transition on the island, saying the process required patience but also “much decisiveness.”
