Pope Benedict To Visit to Mexico & Cuba March 23-28

Fourteen years ago, Pope John Paul II, not only traveled to Mexico but

made the first papal trip to Cuba in its history. Now, all eyes are on

Pope Benedict as he visits these two highly politicized countries – and

only EWTN will have crews on the ground to provide you with the most

complete and authoritative coverage available. Because EWTN was there

with Pope John Paul II and continues to broadcast into Cuba and Mexico

daily, only EWTN can compare and contrast the two visits with the

authority you’ve come to expect.

On the Spanish side, EWTN Español will feature four anchors: EWTN

“Nuestra Fe En Vivo” Host Pepe Alonso; Father Jose Menendez, pastor of

Corpus Christi Parish, in Miami; Jaime Septiem, General Director of El

Observador, a Catholic newspaper in Queretaro, Mexico, and host of

EWTN’s weekly show “Ventana Abierta” on EWTN Español, on the ground in

Mexico; and Alejandro Bermudez, director of EWTN Noticias and ACI

Prensa, on the ground in Cuba. One of the highlights of the Mexico trip

will occur at 7:30 p.m. ET, Sunday, March 25, when the Pope will meet

not only with the Mexican bishops, but also with the heads of the

Episcopal Conference of Latin America; in other words, the hierarchy of

the entire Hispanic Catholic Church in North America.
