Pope asks Virgin to fulfill Cubans' needs

Pope Francis has concluded his Mass at the Sanctuary of the Virgin of Charity of Cobre outside the eastern city of Santiago.

The pope asked the Virgin to give Cubans "what they most desire and most need."

Two children gave him a copy of a century-old letter from islanders to Pope Benedict XV asking him to declare the Virgin the patroness of Cuba.

He now travels to the Cathedral of Santiago to bless families.
