Frank Calzon, Director Emeritus of the Center for a Free Cuba, writes to Miami’s Archbishop Wenski about New York Varela event

The Venerable Father Felix Varela and the Despicable Trucutú Díaz-Canel

From our Bureau of Sorely-Needed Missives

Dear Archbishop Wenski,

I am writing to request your personal attention to an urgent matter. The Catholic Church in New York is sponsoring tomorrow an event in New York honoring Padre FelixVarela, who is an example for the people of Cuba. That’s a good thing.

There are reports that Cuba’s president Diaz-Canel will attend.

The Church ought not to miss this opportunity to ask the Cuban president

1) to stop harassing and threatening parish priests who express concern about the lack of religious freedom and the high number of political prisoners on the island.

2) to urge Mr Díaz Cannel to release all political prisoners and allow visits to Cuban prisons by the International Committee of the Red Cross.

I am hopeful that the American Church efforts would be successful and ameliorate suffering in Cuba.

Bishop Wenski, I hope that you would not be offended if I ask you to pray for the Cuban people and justice and peace in Cuba.

May the Lord bless your efforts.

Yours in Christ,

Frank Calzon

Kindly acknowledge receipt.

  1. That’s not what I would have written to Wenski on this matter, but it probably makes no difference as far as the outcome. Calzon no doubt means well, but I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were he.
