Iguará is a small region located in the southern central area of the municipality of Yaguajay in the province of Sancti Spíritus, east of the Cuban capital. No one could have thought that one of its children would reach the Vatican one day and meet the Supreme Pontiff, having him partake one of his tricks as a circus artist. As a juggler, he has taken his art to France, Belgium, Switzerland and Italy.
He interacted with him until he put a ball to turn on the tip of the index finger of the Pope´s right hand. Such feat got an ovation from the public present. He later told that he could not conceal the fear to be rejected before the tight security control that surrounded him. However, the Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church told him: “Come, do not be afraid, come to me, we will make history together.” The rest is in the imagination of all those present and in a snapshot captured by the photographers that has gone viral around the world.
