Despite herculean efforts by exiled Cubans to derail this event, Trucutú Díaz-Canel and his entourage waltzed into the Church of the Transfiguration in New York City’s Chinatown to take part in a ceremony in honor of the Venerable Felix Varela. Why did Cardinal Dolan and his archdiocese of New York allow such a vile hypocritical act to take place? Why were no Cuban exiles or dissidents allowed to attend?
You know the answer. More of the same. Why should Cardinal Dolan be any different in his approach to Cuba’s murderous tyranny than Papa Che? Perhaps it was Papa Che himself who made this event possible.
And you can bet your bottom dollar that no requests to free political prisoners or to allow freedom of expression were made of Trucutú Díaz-Canel.
Absolutely deplorable event, and inexcusable. Does this count as a sin? Yes, you betcha. A big one. Very, very big. About as big as a priest sexually molesting a child. Let’s call it what it is: the molestation of an entire nation and a saint on his way to canonization..

Miguel Díaz-Canel and a delegation from the regime attended a tribute to Father Félix Varela in New York on Saturday that has generated outrage from the Cuban religious community exiled in the United States.
“In the Church of the Transfiguration, in New York, we honor Father Félix Varela, who 200 years ago arrived in this city. ‘He who first taught us how to think’, wanted #Cuba to be as much an island politically as it was in nature. [sic] and that he owed his independence only to his children,” Díaz-Canel wrote on his account on the social network X.
The fact that the Cuban leader would attend the tribute event was leaked in advance and sparked protests, according to Frank Calzón, founder of the Center for a Free Cuba.
Cuban exiles have pointed out the serious limitations on religious freedom perpetrated by the Office of Religious Affairs of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC), in charge of supervising everything that has to do with the operations of the Church, from permits for processions to the purchase of materials to repair buildings or the passports of priests who wish to travel abroad.
The invitation-only event was approved by Cardinal Timothy Dolan.
“It is a sacrilege. The temple of the Church of the Transfiguration (29 Mott Street, New York, NY 10013), is taken over right now by G2 agents who are part of Díaz-Canel’s entourage,” denounced Pastor Mario Félix Lleonart, founder of the Patmos Institute.
