QUEEN SAYS 'NO' TO CATHOLIC MASSES IN TOWER OF LONDON
Queen Elizabeth II has banned Roman Catholics from saying masses in the royal chapel within the Tower of London, where some of England's most prominent Catholics were executed for opposing King Henry VIII's break with the Roman faith.
The Tower of London, on the banks of the River Thames, dates from the 11th century. The building served as a royal residence, then as a prison. It was the site of many executions, including those of Thomas More, a prominent politician and humanist who refused to recognise the divorce of King Henry VIII. Two of King Henry's six wives were also executed at the Tower of London, which is now one of the most popular tourist attractions in London. [ENI]
