A few sights from Brussels

As a Daughter of St. Francis de Sales, I was privileged to have the opportunity to go on a pilgrimage to some of the sites in France which were important to St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal, who was a close spiritual friend. The two of them founded the Visitation Order, which still exists today. Francis de Sales wrote extensively. His most famous book, Introduction to the Devout Life, is still considered to be a spiritual classic. In it, St. Francis proposes that holiness is possible for all people, not just those who are professed priests and nuns. In his day, this was quite a novel idea.

Before embarking on our pilgrimage, we landed in Brussels, where we spent a day prior to heading to France. Over the next few weeks, I'll share some photos of the rest of our trip. It was beautiful!
Charming narrow streets with lots of outdoor dining opportunities.
The Atomium, originally constructed for the 1958 Worlds Fair
Statue of a former mayor of Brussels and his beloved dog.
A peculiar name for a restaurant, IMHO!
Royal Saint-Hubert Galleries, a fantastic shopping arcade opened between 1846-1847
