Tour-ban in Bom Jesus basilica…a UCAN report


This is a UCAN story titled Tours banned from Xavier Basilica, guides upset.

Says the Jesuit-run news agency: “The basilica rector maintains that the ban, which took effect July 2, will help maintain decorum and a sense of reverence inside the 401-year-old church, but guides, tourists and even some priests say the decision is unfair.” Quotes a whole lot of priests, a couple of guides and a pilgrim.
