Growing interest in faith seen in Cuba

Aid to the Church in Need’s project manager in Cuba said in an interview that “over the past few years a growing interest in Christianity has become evident” in a Communist nation where only 60% of the population is baptized and 2% attend Sunday Mass.
“The hunger for God is there,” said Ulrich Kny. “One can surely speak of a small spring[time] of faith.”
He added:
When a copy of the miraculous image of Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre travelled across the country a few years ago, its journey was followed with great enthusiasm and public interest. The number of adult baptisms has also increased.
Greater interest in the Catholic faith is being shown, especially among the young generation. It often happens that the grandparents pass their beliefs on to their grandchildren, while the parents have grown up as complete atheists. The visit of Pope Francis will surely awaken further interest in the faith here.
