Cuban independent journalist arrested to prevent him from attending papal mass

From the blog Crossing the Barbed Wire of Cuban independent journalist Luis Felipe Rojas:

They Arrested Him so That He Would Not Attend the Pope’s Mass

Administrator’s Note:

Luis Felipe Rojas, author of this blog, was detained by the political police of San German and taken to a police barracks.  His wife remained at home under the species of arrest which, in Cuba, is known as “house arrest”.  His compatriot, Eliecer Palma Pupo, was also detained and  it is possible that they are now in neighboring jail cells in the same Unit.

The telephones of Rojas’ family have been totally left without service since yesterday, although the SMS and Twitpic message services had already been cut weeks before.

This family has been devoutly Catholic for 15 years now, and they have received the sacraments which the faith mentions.  They assist mass with Malcom and Brenda, their small children, every Sunday.
