Now, 49 years later, the Church that he and hundreds of others gave their lives to defend, gives special treatment to those who have his blood and that of Virgilio Campanería, Alberto Tapia and many other young Catholics on their hands, while ignoring the regular Cubans, including the Ladies in White, who are victims of this brutal regime.
All might have passed peacefully if the Ladies in White had been treated with some dignity and seated among the congregation as they had been promised. Instead, mid-way through the service, while Cardinal Bertone made a vacuous plea for reconciliation among all Cubans he was rudely interrupted, as the Ladies in White burst spontaneously into a religious song, crying out "Viva Cristo! Viva Cristo! Viva Cristo!" Burly, plainclothes security men rushed in their direction and the cameras of the media wheeled around to film the moment of protest. Even the cardinal was thrown off track and had to pause. However, so tin-eared is the Vatican's top diplomat that he gave not a flicker of recognition to the long-suffering women and the hundreds of political prisoners they represent in Castro's gulag.
As soon as Mass ended, Cardinal Bertone descended from the altar to offer the Catholic "sign of peace" and a warm embrace for each member of the Cuban high command. Then it was all over, the cardinal had given his blessing to the Communists while keeping the faithful at bay.
