THE RIGHT’S PRAYER FOR POPE FRANCIS: ‘LORD, ENLIGHTEN HIM OR ELIMINATE HIM…’
Just finished reading an enlightening interview with Frei Betto in the magazine Religion Digital (Digital Religion) that we’ve re-printed (in Spanish) in Progreso Semanal. The subject of the interview is Pope Francis’ visit next month to Cuba. Those who know of Betto understand he has had close ties to Cuba for many years; he is also a good friend of Fidel Castro, and published a 1985 interview with the Cuban leader that later became the book, Fidel and Religion.
Betto is a Brazilian Dominican friar, theologian, poet, journalist, educator, and novelist. He is very knowledgeable of the Cuban Revolution.
