Pope Francis will visit Cuba in September

Pope Francis, who aided the rapprochement between the United States and Cuba, plans to visit the island in September just before his trip to the United States. Rev. Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman, confirmed Wednesday that the pope’s rumored visit to Cuba was on, although he did not give a specific date or other details. The Argentine pontiff plans to visit three U.S. cities: Washington where he will meet President Barack Obama on Sept. 23 and address Congress, New York where he is scheduled to speak before the United Nations and Philadelphia where his itinerary includes the World Meeting of Families.
