MIAMI (CBSMiami) – For the faithful, the best thing is to be in Cuba to see the pope in person, but if that’s just not possible, there are a number of places in South Florida where you can go to watch with others to share the experience.
For many, the Shrine of Our Lady of Charity in Miami is the perfect place to go. The Archdiocese has set up a large screen at this most Cuban of shrines located along Biscayne Bay.
It houses a replica of the statuette of Our Lady of Charity which is in El Cobre, Cuba, the discovery of which 400 years ago provided the reason for Pope Benedict’s visit.
The big screen will be there for three days, and Masses will be held daily.
South Florida parishes will hold smaller observances, and Catholic schools will have their students watch parts of the proceedings.
