I love it from this vantage point, just looking up at those beautiful details! Enjoyed the fuller history from the previous post too - fascinating to hear these tales! Hope you enjoy a restful weekend:)

I should know this because I grew up in Saint Louis, Missouri, but was one of the Kings of France named Louis actually made a Saint by the Roman Catholic Church? I don't think of the later King Louises (what is plural for Louis?) being very saintly in their lifestyle.

I had the same question that Dave has. Inquiring minds demand to know . . .

I like the way you composed this! Makes the cathedral look like it's reaching for the heavens, which is what it's supposed to do, I think.

Saint Louis IX and soon we'll have another saintly pope.

No further comment.

We can certainly relate to that around here. Our oldest church, almost under the Arch, as well as the big cathedral, have the same name.
