Description: Pope Francis will visit Cuba next week before proceeding to the US. Cuban President Raul Castro has said he is a big fan of Francis and has even considered returning to the Catholic Church because of Francis’ influence. What will happen if Castro presents himself for Communion during a papal Mass? He and his brother have committed countless atrocities and he certainly would need to receive absolution before receiving the Eucharist. Is Francis ready to deny him in front of the country and the entire world? Paul Kengor has examined the possible outcomes of this hypothetical situation. He’ll join us to talk about it.
