The main altar of La Madeleine, Paris, just before a weekday Mass

La Madeleine, Paris, main altar.

Kathryn took this photo of the main altar of the Church of St. Mary Magdalene, La Madeleine, located in the heart of Paris, over five years ago, in January 2013.

It was one of those right-place-right-time situations we like to take advantage of. We happened to be walking by the church just a few minutes before Mass was starting, on a Monday at lunchtime. We weren’t in any particular hurry to be anywhere, so we stayed.

I remember the priest was speaking in French but his accent was clearly not French. Oddly, that made it easier for me to understand his homily, although I’ve admittedly long since forgotten what he said.
