Former Mosque to Stay Catholic

A plea to turn the Roman Catholic cathedral in Cordoba, Spain, into an ecumenical temple open to all faiths has been rejected as confusing, the BBC reports.

Originally a Moorish mosque, the cathedral is a U.N. World Heritage Site and a tourist attraction. Spain’s Islamic Board said security guards often prevent Muslims from praying there, and called for joint use to promote co-existence.

One thought on “Former Mosque to Stay Catholic

  1. Praise Jesus

    Our Churches are not Touristic places or ecumenical places.

    All Saints of the Universal Church and Mary Queen of Heaven interceed so that the Good News of Jesus Christ reaches througout the world.
