Confirmations on the Island and Perpetual Need

His Excellency, Bishop Bernard Fellay, confirming in Havana
************************************************************************

When this page was last updated, it was asked that all pray to our Lady of Charity of El Cobre for her intercession on behalf of Una Voce Cuba and the whole island.  Many thanks to all who did so, especially those who kept a novena of such prayer.

 
Very, very recently the faithful had the opportunity to be confirmed according to the traditional Roman Rite by a bishop who visited, a visit longed for over many, many years.  His Excellency, Bishop Bernard Fellay, visited the island.  He offered Mass and baptized.  He was accompanied by Fr. Jiménez.  He strengthened the faithful merely by his presence, but perhaps most blessedly for some, he confirmed the faithful who were both desirous and ready, something not possible for a non-bishop without jurisdiction (the details of which we need not enter into here).  He visited all of the private oratories with their respective apostolates: Havana, Matanzas, and Mena (the best picture of confirmation just so happened to come from Havana).  Right here is a picture of His Excellency with Javier Luis, the head of Una Voce Cuba and Hogar Don Bosco, with two children from the very little town of Mena.

The current title of this campaign to reach $8,500 makes reference to regular support.  Cuba is a very unfortunate situation.  It cannot be treated like those to whom the various chapters of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul give help.  Mena cannot be helped for a while and then get on its own two feet.  The government simply has policies that prevent such.  Yes, the US has an embargo on the island, but no other (or at least almost no other) nation has an embargo on Cuba, and the situation is what it is, inflicted by the island's own government.  I invite you to consider contributing money regularly other than through this campaign -- we can arrange the details -- or at least regularly to the campaign until the campaign reaches $8,500.  One note: it is the case that under the instructions of President Trump, the Treasury Department has now returned to an earlier policy limiting who can send money to the island.  I no longer can send funds.  Currently, we have a family member of a member of Una Voce Cuba who will send the money to the island.  In the event that person no longer wishes to do so, the money will simply wait until another individual can be identified to ensure that we comply with US law.

 
Finally, Una Voce Cuba is no longer a member of or affiliated with Foederatio Internationalis Una Voce (FIUV).  Una Voce Cuba is not changing its name at this time.  It is also not changing its aims or actions.  If it were to become necessary or advantageous  to change the name of the organization in the near future, I would be sure to let everyone know.
