12 days of Christmas: day 12

Look closely at the photograph and I think you’ll realise why I’ve chosen it for this year’s Christmas Card. I took the photograph on a wintery day on our December 2018 trip to Paris where my beloved visited Notre Dame. Sadly it was ravaged by fire on 15 April, losing its gothic spire, roof and many precious artefacts.

Consequently, Notre Dame will not hold a Christmas mass for the first time since 1803, though the rector, Patrick Chauvet, will still celebrate midnight mass at the nearby church of Saint-Germain l’Auxerrois.

 

Season’s Greetings to you all

I’m going to be taking a bit of a break from blogging until the New Year. Consequently, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you, and your nearest and dearest, every happiness, good health and much success for 2020 and beyond………………………
