AP, September 20

Havana — The latest developments in Pope Francis’ visit to Cuba and the United States. All times local:

6:30 p.m.

Pope Francis has spoken off-the-cuff at length for the first time during his trip to Cuba, breaking from prepared remarks to deliver a sermon that focuses extensively on the importance of poverty to the Roman Catholic Church.

He also warns of the dangers of falling prey to the temptations of wealth.

In Francis’s word: “Our dear mother church is poor. God wants it poor, as he wanted our Holy Mother Mary to be poor.”

… Our dear mother church is poor??????????????? Maybe his holiness needs to take another look at the books.
