How wonderful the pope is reaching out to all our brothers and sisters just as Jesus taught us.

Is he even still alive?
. Wouldn't he be excommunicated since he's a communist?
I hope the pope performs an exorcism on him while he's there.

Fidel is 85 and his brother Raul is 80. Fidel ruled Cuba for 49 years, then handed the reins over to Raul. It's interesting how "popular" Communist revolutions always end up with a single dictator in charge for life, and how many innocent people are lined up against the wall and shot for being 'counterrevolutionaries.' Or sometimes they were just guilty of being middle class businessmen.
