This is another scan of a film photo taken in Paris many years ago. The Sacré-Cœur Cathedral is beautiful. It is majestic both inside and out. According to Wikipedia: "The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, commonly known as Sacré-Cœur Basilica and often simply Sacré-Cœur (French: Basilique du Sacré-Cœur, pronounced [sakʁe kœʁ]), is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. A popular landmark, the basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city. Sacré-Cœur is a double monument, political and cultural, both a national penance for the defeat of France in the 1870 Franco-Prussian War and the socialist Paris Commune of 1871 crowning its most rebellious neighborhood, and an embodiment of conservative moral order, publicly dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. " Construction began in 1875 and was completed in 1914.
"A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral." ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery
