The election of a new SGC in Cuba could lead to the introduction of Afro-Cuban religious practices in the Masonic ritual?


Jesús Luciano Armada Pena, Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council of Cuba has resigned. His reasons were the advanced age and cardiovascular malfunction. Therefore Lázaro Cuesta Valdés was elected Sovereign Grand Commander of Cuba and Adalberto González Concepción Lieutenant Grand Commander.

Cuba's new Sovereign Grand Commander

Cuesta Valdés is one of the leaders of the "Abacuá" secret society and founder of a religios-syncretic society composed by the Babalawos, entitled "Organising Committee of the Letter of the Year". Babaaláwo in full and pronounced Baba-a-láwo, literally meaning 'father or master of the mysticism' in the Yoruba language.

There were also rumors that Cuesta Valdés Cuba leads a society (Abacuá) which follows castrist government guidelines. Also, there was fear that the election of Lázaro Cuesta Valdés could lead to the introduction of Afro-Cuban religious practices in the Masonic ritual.
