In the Vatican

Now that Cuba has named a new ambassador to the Vatican (Eduardo Delgado Bermudez) and President Obama named Cuban American Miguel Diaz to the same post, Rui Ferreira muses:

“I wonder what gambit Benedict XVI would be promoting and whether the two cubanitos will ever walk together in the labyrinthine corridors of the Basilica, where no one sees them. In diplomacy, the Church has two thousand years of experience and a lot of patience. And the Holy See is a discreet place to have a cafecito without much trouble.”
