Photo of the Day

FILE - In this Nov. 10, 2011 file photo, Cuba's Cardinal Jaime Ortega attends a procession honoring the nation's patron saint, the Virgin of Charity of Cobre, in Havana, Cuba. For months, Ortega has been under fire: called a lackey and political ally of Raul Castro's communist government, asked to resign over his treatment of protesters and ridiculed in Miami as a snobby elitist. Church officials on the island have launched a full-throated defense of their leader, and Catholic publications have harshly denounced his critics. Analysts say the increasingly virulent back-and-forth is extremely unusual on an island where the church has traditionally preferred to exercise influence quietly, behind the scenes.
