No Sharing Of The Holy Sepulchre

Vatican officials have flatly denied reports that the Franciscan custodians of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem have offered to redesign the church and share it with other denominations.

The reports had said that the Franciscans had made their offer, backed by the Vatican, after a detailed study of the deeds and titles of the building which led them to believe that the Greek Orthodox Church owned most of the church.

But a Vatican official commented: " The Franciscan Fathers could not propose any plan which the Church itself could not advance. They are mere custodians and cannot modify the status giro of the Holy Sepulchre. The Catholic Church cannot share the custody of the Basilica."
