About Notre-Dame de Paris
“From the moment I entered its dark, sacred precincts, I was in love with Notre-Dame de Paris (Our Lady of Paris). I walked around wide-eyed, awestruck by the grandeur of its architecture and esthetics. I inhaled the atmosphere, the faint smell of incense, the whisperings from the crowds of other people also experiencing these wonders in their own particular ways. Then I lit candles and sat in front of the altar praying quietly, relishing the tranquility and meditative ambience. I listened to the choir as it practiced for Vespers. This was in 1972, on my first visit to Paris…” – From the introduction
