HAVANA, CUBA - It was a historical meet and greet for Pope Francis this weekend in Cuba.

Upon arriving in Havana, he shook hands with president Raul Castro, the brother of Cuba's former president, Fidel Castro.

While cruising on his popemobile, thousands in welcomed him.

Sunday, thousands gathered three hours before for mass and eagerly waited to hear the pope's message at Revolution Square.

His message is to "serve people, not ideas," hoping the country's government will practice acts of charity to its people.

On the other hand, some 90 miles to the north, some in Miami are saying nope to the pope.

Protesters held signs that called the pope a Vatican traitor and a Marxist, upset that the leader of the Catholic Church is giving credibility to the communist dictatorship.
