What grandeur...all that intricacy. I wonder if God approves?

I am ASHAMED. I lived right next to that church for 3 years as a student and never went inside. Thank you for showing me my old neighbourhood.

Arrr! Ciel, how did you do that??? This place is so beautiful I could eat it. It's been closed every time I had a chance to go in! It's so nice to see it finally!

@ ciel - Law student, I guess...
@ tapirgal - My favorite church in Paris. It's often closed, usually it's open in the afternoon.
