Today we visited 3 churches in Paris: Notre Dame, Sainte Chapelle and Sacre Coeur. Each was so different in style, and yet unified in the builders' desire to give glory to God in the design and beauty.
At Sacre Coeur, we celebrated mass in the crypt chapel. Spare and dim, with the back wall composed of the stones that support this massive church, the message for today was equally simple yet foundational: Jesus. Today is the optional memorial of St Teresa of Calcutta, and we were reminded of her single hearted focus on Jesus as the source of her strength and abilities.
