MEXICO / GERMANY / POLAND / VATICAN / CUBA : Pope Benedict's Visit Underwhelms Mexicans.


     Pope Benedict XVI is expected to visit Mexico...and Cuba...before next Easter.
     But...though nominally 90% Catholic...Mexicans don't seem all that excited by the prospect.
     Call it JP2 love.
     The late Polish Pope John Paul II was beloved in Mexico.
     He visited Mexico five times...making it the number 3 most-visited country after Poland and France.
     JP2 also spoke Spanish...endearing him even more to Mexicans.
