In Search of Andalus

A poignant little tale last evening. Two Spanish priests joined us for Mass at the Cathedral; they explained that they were Canons at Cordoba Cathedral, in Spain, who had spotted three wooden beams from the Mezquita in Cordoba presented for auction at Christie's, in London. They had come to London to speak to the auction house, to try to persuade them that these items had been stolen, and to withdraw them from sale. Let us pray for the success of their mission.

The Mezquita is a the astonishing Moorish mosque that now contains the Cathedral in Cordoba.
