Associated Press Writer EL COBRE Cuba AP Old fashioned Christian faith and socialist fervor mix easily at the shrine to Cubas patron saint providing a poignant glimpse at everyday Cuban life Neatly folded uniforms of officers of the Revolutionary Armed Forces the official red book of the Union of Young Communists and credentials of Olympic athletes are among thousands of items placed here The yellow pencils of students who passed their exams and a kidney stone the size of an egg successfully removed from a Havana woman are also among the expressions of love and faith The Rev Jorge Raima who ovfcrsees the shrine says hundreds of Cubans from around the country and1 from new homes in Miami Europe and elsewhere travel here each month to thank the Virgin for miracles the saving of a childs life help in finding a husband a job granting an elderly woman her wish to see her first great grandchild Anywhere from 20 to 100 people make the pilgrimage each day Raima expects those visits will increase in the months leading up to Pope John Paul IPs first visit to Cuba in January The pope is to slop here when he travels to the nearby eastern port city of Santiago to celebrate Mass She is beloved among said Raima She is Although religious practice is legal and has recently becojne more accepted in this communist country believers in the past were often ridiculed by relatives coworkers or neighbors In the years after the 1959 revolution President Fidel Castro reportedly wore a medallion engraved with the Virgin of Charity given to him by a little girl He stopped wearing it after his government became increasingly Marxist Even his mother Lina Ruz offered thanks here for keeping her son safe in the Sierra Maestra mountains Although Catholicism has limited influence here most Cubans still know the story of the how the Virgin of Charity appeared in the Bay of Nipe near Santiago in 1628 to brothers Rodrigo and Juan de Hoyos mulattos of mixed white and black heritage and Juan Moreno a black boy of about 10 Other versions say all three witnesses were named Juan and that one was white one was mulatto and one was black Struggling in a stormtossed Jxat they heard a voice declare I am the Virgin of Across the waves they spied a wooden board carrying a statue of the Virgin Mary dressed in a yellow gown and depicted as a mulatta In her left arm she carried a mulatto baby Jesus In her right hand she held a cross Her long earrings dangled past her neck I am the Virgin of was inscribed on the board What tradition says is that same board is framed and displayed on the basilicas first floor The statue about a meter tall is in a small chapel on the second floor After leaving their offerings downstairs Cubans climb the stairs to light candles and pray Cuban girls traditionally offer thanks here on their 15th birthday the age of marriagability in much of Latin America Cubans living abroad pay homage here on return visits Beloved beauty thank you for making this visit to Cuba says a note left with a photograph of a young woman with a broad smile With all my In a mixture of religious and political language Carla Chang offered thanks for the miraculous release
