Pope Benedict XVI visits Mexico for the first time en route to Cuba where he would also express his views about Cuba’s treatment of political dissenters. This was reported by various Mexican and international news sites, March 24, 2012.

According to further reports, the Pope urged the thousands of Catholics to listen to his message of peace and resist being enticed by prohibited substances. He had also urged the local churches to steer the faithful away from worshiping money brought about by them.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon met Pope Benedict as thousands of pilgrims lined the stretch of the Pope’s route into the city center. The Pope’s historic visit to Cuba would be the first in 14 years for the communist country.

Reportedly, Pope Benedict also said:

”Today it is evident that Marxist ideology, in the way it was conceived, no longer corresponds to reality. In this way, we can no longer respond and build a society. New models must be found with patience and in a constructive way.”
