10 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Vatican sets January 1998 date for papal trip to By JOHN THAVIS rejected because the Cuban Cuban President Fidel Castro the pope would be free to go where Catholics. After Catholic News Service VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- After weeks of discussions with Cuban officials, the Vatican has set January 1998 as the date for Pope John Paul II's first trip to Cuba. The decision, announced Jan. 4, means the Vatican opted to push the visit back a few months rather than combine it with a trip to Brazil next October. Vat- ican sources said that would have been too taxing on the 76- year-old pontiff. The sources said the idea of an earlier trip to Cuba m perhaps as soon as this spring -- was church and government need more time to prepare for the pope's arrival. Typically, local churches use the run-up to a papal visit as a time of intense evangelization. The date was announced in Havana by Cardinal Jaime Orte- ga Alamino and confirmed by Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls, who said the pope would travel to the island dur- ing the second half of January 1998. In Cuba, the announce- ment coincided with a visit by Italian Cardinal Camillo Ruini, president of the Italian bishops' conference.
