Churches of Goa
Basilica of Bom Jesus
The Basilica of Bom Jesu is known to all as the Church in Goa. Attached to it there is a large 3-storeyed building to which in all probability we do not give a second look. And yet it was originally the main building -- the Cassa Professa and Bom Jesu was attached to it as its Church. The "Professed House" according to Jesuit law is one which is intended for the exercise of the ministries of the Society and should be conspicuous for the exactness of the Jesuit way of life. Such houses were few by far and it speaks much that as early as 1585 one was established in Goa. The Jesuits in such houses had to live purely on alms.
Collegiate Church of Our Lady of the Rosary
As you approach Old Goa from Panaji, your eyes fall on a fortress like building that rises above the vegetation on the hill. It is the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary built on the spot from which Afonso de Albuquerque directed the re-conquest of Goa on 25 November 1510. In the time of Francis Xavier this was an isolated church on the outskirts of the city, a short quarter of an hour from the centre. Appalled by the ignorance of religious matters in the city, the saint would go with a little bell through the streets and gather children, slaves of both sexes and adults and lead them in a column to the Church of the Rosary. There standing before the altar he taught them their prayers and instructed them in their faith for about two hours at a stretch everyday. More than 300 would frequently listen to him with rapt attention. On Sundays and feast days the crowds were so great that the church could never hold them all.
