Cuban Government becomine more intolerant towards Catholics
    Government intolerance and repression towards Catholics has been increasing in recent months, according to the Vatican's Fides news agency.
    Fides says the latest move is a law which suspends diplomas or degrees of professionals who enter a seminary or Religious Order.
    In recent years a number of medical doctors have entered a seminary or joined a Jesuit or Franciscan community in this island. Under this new law, as priests or Religious these physicians will be barred from practicing their profession. Nevertheless, the report continues, the Catholic Church in Cuba "continues capillary evangelization among the people, youth in particular".
