Pope at Cuban Mass: Overcome resistance to change
HOLGUIN, Cuba - Pope Francis is calling on Cubans to heed Jesus Christ's invitation to overcome resistance to change.
Speaking in his homily at a large outdoor Mass in Holguin's Revolution Plaza, the pontiff says Christ challenges us daily to believe in the possibility of personal transformation.
Francis says "He invites us slowly to overcome our preconceptions and our reluctance to think that others, much less ourselves, can change."
It's the pope's third day on the island. He has called on Cubans to serve people rather than ideologies and not close themselves off to others who think differently.
