Sorry Jesus, no sandals …

Candelaria, exterior de la Basílica
Basílica de Candelaria

Shortly, a sign will be put up at the doors of the Basílica de Candelaria, it is reported, prohibiting entry to persons who are not dressed in a “dignified and respectful” manner. The objective is to keep out those people who would attempt to enter the church wearing only bikinis, swimsuits, beach wraps, sandals or merely wrapped in beach towels, says the report. The Vatican recently made a proclamation upgrading the status of the basilica, which is the reason for strengthening controls over the dress code to visit the islands’ Patroness. Among the restrictions: men are not permitted to enter wearing shorts and sandals. OK, we get the respect thing, but what did Jesus himself apparently wear?
