Pope Benedict Welcomes First Cuban Pilgrimage to the Tombs of the Apostles

An extraordinary story within the great spiritual mega-event that is World Youth Day, is the first Cuban pilgrimage to the tombs of the Apostles.  The Cuban youth, accompanied by Cardinal Jaime Ortega Alamino were greeted by Pope Benedict XVI at his Sunday audience at Castel Gandolfo.  They, along with nearly two million other young pilgrims from around the world, will join the Pope later this week in Madrid.
