Pope Francis prays before a statue of the Virgin del Charity, Cuba's patron saint, as he arrives to celebrate a Mass at the Plaza of the Revolution, in Holguin, Cuba, Monday. The original statue is 403 years old and and stands just over a foot tall, but the petite wooden statue in a small-town church in eastern Cuba is among the most venerated Roman Catholic icons in the world and an object of pride and reverence for hundreds of thousands on the island.
