Is Raul Ready To Repent? (from Nisi Dominus)

The Devil Can Quote Scripture  

The Devil himself can quote Scripture for his own purposes (see Matthew 4:6 & Luke 4:10), but sometimes even the most hardened sinners really do come to repentance. We can't tell, of course, what's happening in another person's heart, so it's hard to know what to make of Cuban President Raul Castro's remarks at his recent visit with Pope Francis.  After his visit with the Pontiff, according to an account in the Wall Street Journal, Castro said:

When the Pope goes to Cuba in September, I promise to go to all his Masses, and with satisfaction.

He also assured us :

I read all the speeches of the Pope, his commentaries, and if the Pope continues this way, I will go back to praying and go back to the Church, and I'm not joking.

You'll pardon me if I entertain a few doubts about Castro's sincerity.  For more than half a century now he and his brother Fidel have been busy murdering, torturing, and impoverishing their fellow Cubans, and he has shown little indication that he ready to change his ways . . .
