Francis meets with Fidel Castro’s admirer, Patriarch Kirill, on Communist soil


Marielena Montesino de Stuart

While Catholics are persecuted, both in Communist Cuba and in the Russian-occupied Ukraine, Francis has decided to meet with Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church, as part of the modernist Vatican best-friends-with-everyone agenda.

Many Catholics and non-Catholics are observing this with dismay.

I’m not.

I don’t experience dismay anymore– over the actions that come from the Vatican’s modernist / progressive administrators. You see, I lived under Communism in Cuba and I am very familiar with the socializing and political power maneuvers that take place under the disguise of ecumenism (even though this meeting in Havana is brief and may not really be focused on the ecumenical agenda). Rather, according to official Catholic Church news sources, as well as Russian Orthodox officials, this meeting is mostly focused on the persecution of Christians around the world.


Then… why not begin this meeting in Havana by denouncing the persecution of Christians in Cuba– and the persecution of Catholics in Ukraine’s Russian-occupied territory? But no…. that would be a “delicate” balancing act for Francis– as “progressives” like to say.

After 57 years of one of the most gruesome Communist dictatorships on the planet, Cubans are still being persecuted on the streets of Havana and throughout the island, by Castro’s rogue government. But in spite of this dark and violent reality, Francis has chosen to bring about this “first time” historic meeting with Kirill in Cuba — which only serves to legitimize Castro’s “revolution” in the eyes of the world. As if Francis’s visit to Cuba in 2015 wasn’t enough! Francis’s meeting with Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill is also seen as much more than a tacit approval of Vladimir Putin’s Soviet-style expansionism, as I will explain below.

Patriarch Kirill’s “Dear Comandante…”

Before I go any further, I want my readers to carefully peruse the following “Dear Comandante…” letter that Patriarch Kirill wrote to Fidel Castro, for the Communist murderous thug’s 85th birthday:

Letter from Patriarch Kirill to Fidel Castro


In case you didn’t know (because you missed some of my articles) the administrators of the Russian Orthodox Church have a long collaborative trajectory through the halls of the KGB. Given this scenario, Patriarch Kirill’s visit to Havana, and his words of admiration for Fidel Castro, should come as no surprise.

A word about emissaries in Havana

I have written about my life under Communism in Cuba– and how Cubans have been abandoned by the modernist Vatican administration, which through the years has refused to confront Cuba’s Communist dictator, Fidel Castro. Instead, the Vatican has chosen to honor Castro, on his own turf, by sending their ecclesiastical emissaries to Havana. Please don’t buy the propaganda that Catholicism is alive and well in Cuba, and that Vatican visitors to the island are advancing freedom of religion. The truth is that Cubans are being persecuted now with the same consistent viciousness– in spite of papal visits and Obama’s new Cuban policy of farcical one-way diplomacy.

Cuba’s Communist government is unmoved by any kind of diplomacy, including the overtures and dialogue emanating from Russian Orthodox Church leaders and the Vatican. Castro’s operatives are very savvy at manipulating every word and every optical opportunity to advance their “revolution” when these high-level emissaries visit Cuba.

This means that Francis’s visit to Havana is another affirmation that Cuba, under Communism, is worthy of being a place where historic meetings can take place. Francis’s visit is both a warm laudatory drop-in on Fidel Castro’s neighborhood, along with the realization of his long-held desire to meet with Patriarch Kirill, in order to advance the elusive ecumenical dream of closeness. But Patriarch Kirill– whose aspirations have always appeared to be centered on increasing the numbers in the Russian Orthodox Church pews, is not interested in Catholics. Why should he care about Rome? After all, Kirill’s political vision of an all-powerful Orthodoxy based in Moscow has been more than exposed through his indifference towards Ukranian Catholics, who are suffering greatly due to persecution under the invasion and occupation by Russia. Meanwhile, Francis appears to be taking the side of Moscow.

Francis nearly scolded the Catholic Bishops of Ukraine during their “ad limina” visit to Rome last year, by telling them that the war in the Ukraine was “fratricidal violence”– which put the Ukrainian victims and their Russian invaders on the same level!  Imagine this scenario, here are these Ukrainian Catholic bishops making their pilgrimage to Rome and seeking the help and protection of their religious leader– and Francis tells them that theirs is a war among Christians– while the Russians invade their land! With this rhetoric, Francis has put a very big smile on the faces of Patriarch Kirill and his KGB partner, Vladimir Putin.

While Ukranian Catholics plead for help from the Vatican, Francis continues to drive his point across with even more forcefulness, by citing “international law.” That’s right. International law– as in the United Nations! The question is– what will Francis say if Ukranian Catholics (who are small in numbers) are massacred once more, as was the case under Soviet domination?

The top archbishop of the Ukranian Catholic Church, Sviatoslav Shevchuk of Kiev-Halych, recently stated: “I do not expect that the meeting of Pope Francis with Patriarch Kirill, planned for Feb. 12, will bring any particular changes. Although it is good that the meeting will take place.”

Such a big fuss over a meeting in Havana, which will not bring any freedom to those who need it desperately in Cuba, is in my opinion and the opinion of many Catholics and non-Catholics, a vehicle that empowers the Castro brothers in Cuba– as well as Vladimir Putin and Patriarch Kirill, in their quest to advance Russia’s expansionism. And since I am a straight shooter, allow me to quote from one of my commentaries on the matter of the modernist Vatican’s cooperation with Communists– and the Russian Orthodox Church leaders as KGB collaborators:

From The Beijing Affair (Part Three) by Marielena Montesino de Stuart:

These Communist tendencies in the Russian Orthodox hierarchy have persisted to this day, as we just witnessed during Patriarch Kirill’s visit  to Beijing, where he met with China’s President, Xi Jinping, on May 10– in order to get Beijing’s blessing for the Russian Orthodox Church in China.  This is another example of the great deceit called the “Sino-Soviet divide.”

… the Vatican is one of the world’s most powerful and influential entities, when it comes to diplomacy and communication with religious leaders, heads of states and foreign ambassadors– with the ability to dispatch emissaries and nuncios to just about every corner of the planet.

This refusal to condemn Communism was also described by another insider– Fr. Ralph M. Wiltgen, S.V.D., who in 1962, at the age of 41, became the founder of the Council News Service, which gave him in-depth access and exposure to the key players of Vatican II—as well as to thousands of documents and communications, during the 281 days that the Vatican II Council was in session. Father Wiltgen, who was also a polyglot,  wrote daily news reports in six languages, covering the proceedings of the Council.

In The Rhine Flows into the Tiber, Father Wiltgen offered an account of the twisted way in which every attempt to have Communism condemned  by the Vatican II Council, was consistently undermined.

Marxism on the march

The refusal to condemn Communism in the crafting of Vatican II, has defined  the modern Catholic Church— and has aided and abetted the spread of Communism. This has been manifested through Liberation Theology and other Marxist-inspired movements, which have found a home in the “dialogue” of modern Catholicism.

In the meantime, Vatican officials have refined the art of doublespeak— by making proclamations against Marxism as an ideology— while allowing Marxist priests and prelates to remain active.”

Let’s get back to Havana…

Undoubtedly, this meeting between Francis and Patriarch Kirill also has something to do with the upcoming Synod of the Orthodox Church, which will officially open on June 19, 2016 in Crete.  But that’s a political/ecumenical topic for another day…

Right now, let’s deal with Havana. As such, I am inviting my readers to prepare themselves with some useful and important information, prior to Francis’s arrival in Cuba tomorrow. Please click on the links below to read some of my commentaries about Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill, as well as other Russian Orthodox Church administrators– who happily collaborate with the Communists in Havana and Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

You won’t even have to connect the dots– because these individuals are operating in plain view. But who’s watching?

I am– and so will you.

It’s time to lift the fog… someone has to say the truth.
