Cuban Exiles & The Pope

— NPR's Cheryl Devall reports from Miami that Cuban exiles have conflicting feelings about Pope John Paul's visit to Cuba next week. Many are concerned that President Fidel Castro is using the Pope to his own political advantage. While some Cuban exiles in Miami plan trips to Cuba during John Paul's visit, others are adamantly opposed. They say it would lend Castro support. The Archdiocese of Miami is sponsoring a pilgrimage.
