VATICAN CITY — “To the dislike and failure of the White House´s diplomatic pressures, Pope Benedict XVI will arrive to Cuba on March 26th,” reports the Cuban foreign ministry’s new website dedicated to the papal visit.

Internet penetration on the island is 14%, according to the International Telecommunications Union, so the site is presumably intended largely for foreign consumption. Here visitors can read the government line on the state of religious freedom in Cuba, among other topics.

For another perspective, the USCCB website has a page dedicated to the pope’s trip to Mexico and Cuba, featuring coverage by CNS.
