Visiting Notre Dame In Paris

Today we visited the breath-takingly beautiful Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.
The vaulted ceilings and radiant stained glass windows were incredible.

In a moment when I was by myself in Notre Dame, I said prayers for the people of Boston and the family and friends that they lost because of the terrorist attack during the Boston Marathon on Monday. I also said prayers for the people in Texas and the horrible tragedy that occurred there this morning. This world we live in today needs everyone's prayers.

Here is a picture of this beautiful cathedral. I thought I heard the guide say that the pieta was sculpted by Michelangelo, but I'll have to verify that later.
