Blessed Jose Olallo Valdez

November 29, 2008

As I mentioned here earlier, today marked the beatification of Blessed Jose Olallo Valdez in Cuba.  He is Cuba’s second native blessed (the first was beatified just last year, though it occurred in Spain). 

One bit of news to come out of the event was the attendance of Cuban President Raul Castro.  That’s significant in a nation that has been officially atheist, and strongly anti-Catholic in practice, for decades.

Here’s an article on a miraculous cure associated with Blessed Jose’s cause.
