Raul Castro Says Pope Inspiring Him To Return To Church [VIDEO]

By

Cuban leader Raul Castro, on a visit to the Vatican, where he thanked the pope for helping broker a thaw in relations between Havana and Washington, said he was so impressed with the pontiff that he might return to Catholicism, the faith he grew up in.

“I will resume praying and turn to the Church again if the Pope continues in this vein,” Castro, the 83-year-old younger brother of Fidel, told reporters, adding, “I mean what I say.”

“The pontiff is a Jesuit, and I, in some way, am too. I studied at Jesuit schools,” he said.
