Le Musee d'Art Sacre


Just a few images from the Museum of Sacred Art in Pary le Monial. The last photo in the series is a panoramic view of one of the rooms there. I thought it made for an intersting image.
Mariner's cross
The objects on the cross symbolize events from Holy Week
With apologies to other great masters, I find this image of the last supper most intriguing.

Le Hostellerie des Trois Pigeons


I have to say that for pure charm, it's hard to imagine a better choice than the Hotel of the Three Pigeons in Paray le Monial. Unfortunately my photos weren't able to capture just how delightful this place was. I never did learn how it earned this name, though.

The Chapel of the Apparitions in Paray le Monial


This lovely chapel honors the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Devotion to the Sacred Heart - in its modern form - was received by Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque in a series of visions. Sister Margaret Mary was a Visitation Sister who lived in the 17th century in the monastery in Paray le Monial.

The beautiful basilica in Paray le Monial


Here are a few photos from the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. As with some of the other cathedrals we saw in France, this one was completed over centuries, with the architecture evolving over time. As result, different sides of the church show a completely different character. But it is all so beautiful!
