Liane speaks with Father Thomas Reese, senior fellow at the Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown University about Pope John Paul''s visit to Cuba later this week. Father Reese says John Paul the Second has a special connection to Cuba given that he was a priest and Bishop in Poland, which once was controlled by a communist regime. The visit will highlight both religious and political issues in the island nation.
