A construction crew began erecting the altar for the Mass that Pope Francis will officiate in the Revolution Square in Havana, from where he can see on his left the huge portrait of Ernesto Che Guevara, 36 meters high and based on a famous photo by Korda, which since 1993 covers the facade of the Ministry of Interior.
On his trip to Cuba, Francis will officiate on September 20 a pitched mass at the Revolution Square, the heart of Cuban political power, which also did his predecessors John Paul II in 1998 and Benedict XVI in 2012.
Beside the altar of iron and wood, the workers built a platform for the choir, and two platforms for the press, leaving room for 4,000 seats for special guests, including Cuban President Raul Castro.
