HAVANA, Cuba – Pope Francis is currently on his four-day trip to Cuba. Preparations are underway for the pontiff's planned Mass on Sunday.

The pope will preside over the Mass, which will be held at Revolution Square, known for many historic events including masses presided by Pope John Paul in 1998 and Pope Benedict in 2012.

Pope Francis helped pave the way for the United States and Cuba to begin rebuilding the bonds the countries once had.

While in Cuba, the pope will pray at the cathedral with local priests and seminarians.
