Vatican City, Jul 28, 2012 / 16:29 pm
The decision to make priests available inside the Vatican Museums to offer spiritual comfort to visitors has been generally welcomed by tourists in Rome.
"I think it's a good idea because they could answer a lot of questions if anybody is inspired and has questions about their faith," 25-year-old Molly Sullens from San Diego told CNA as she exited an afternoon tour of the museums on July 27.
"I think it's a great idea, too," said her boyfriend 27-year-old Nick Fandel, also from San Diego, who found the Sistine Chapel particularly "awe inspiring."
"I mean if you want to talk to somebody rather than just see the art, you should definitely have that option."
