St Etienne du Mont

A shrine to the patron saint of Paris: Saint Geneviève

This beautiful church next to Le Panthéon has so many wonderful things to look at and hear--like the great organ was playing. Geneviève's tomb is enshrined in a lacy brass box. People slip in tiny written prayers wherever they can. Pope John Paul II was pictured here. Blaise Pascal is buried in this church as well. Look how tender this delicate sculpture is of Saint Anthony listening to baby Jesus.
