Life after Fidel Castro could be different for these toddlers in Havana, and the Catholic Church is hoping to bring about some changes. Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican's No. 2 official, said Thursday he hopes his visit to Cuba will give "a new push" to relations between the communist government and the island's Roman Catholic Church, which hopes to reopen religious schools and increase its presence in state media. Cardinal Bertone's visit began Wednesday.
