You've given me another Church to add to my list to visit next time.
I love those kneeling chairs in French churches.
It's sad that most of the churches are so empty on Sundays - when I go there's usually only a handful of old people in the first few rows. But I do love hearing the Mass in French.
take care

Shane,
I agree. It is sad that the churches in France are so rarely used for the purpose that they were built. These kneeling chairs are favorites of mine as well. Thanks for your visits and nice comments!

Wong,
I love seeing you here every day! Merci!

J'aime beaucoup l'intérieur des églises! Ces chaises vides attendent les visiteurs!

Virginia, I love this scene, one that is repeated church after church in Paris. I have not been to this one....

It is time to go back, mon amie.

Bises,

I love this composition—and the sepia tones.
Bon dimanche a toi, V!

I love your Sunday Paris Church series...there's nothing quite like being in one of these...the quiet, the beauty, the attention to detail, the art....they are quite rightly, magnificent...and you capture the spirit of them so well!

où sont les paroissiens ?

Virginia said...

Owen,
je ne sais pas. It makes me so sad to see these wonderful churches with so few worshiping there.

Judging from the number of people at Church, looks like a lot of Parisians are going to...the other place!
