Córdoba: a Catholic mass in the mosque
Today we had a mass in a very, very special place. First it was a Visigothic Catholic church built around 600. Then, in 784, a big mosque was built on top of the Visigothic church, called the Great Mosque of Córdoba. In 1236 Córdoba was reconquered by the Spanish and the mosque was transformed into a cathedral.

One of our prayer intentions was that one day Christians and Muslims will pray in unity in this wonderful place.
