The pope errs

What benefit did Fidel Castro bring to humanity for Pope Francis to honor him and his family with a personal visit?

Does the pope remember that Castro destroyed families with his , criminal ideology? Thousands Or that he persecuted, incarcerated and executed Catholic believers?

Does the pope remember Castro closing Catholic institutions, expelling the Catholic clergy and religious orders from? My husband was persecuted by the Castro’s regime for being the president of a student association in a Catholic University.

The efforts, dreams and ideals of generations of decent, good and hard working people was taken away by Castro and his ideology forever.

Shame on the pope for paying homage to a criminal and a thief like Fidel Castro. I will continue my deep belief in Christ and His teachings, but not much for the institution led by men.
