I posted this last Christmas but as you weren't here then, I'll post it especially for you.

It's Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal, taken Christmas 2006

I was really pleased with the way it turned out - my other ones were pretty fuzzy!

We visited the Notre Dame Basilica over 18 years ago, it is beautiful!

I will post a photo of our small Parish during Advent. What a great idea cheesy

Very!!! There is another, more "everyday use" chapel at the back, which is very modern in decor and hasn't nearly as much stained glass (the front part probably caused a national shortage!!!) I'll try and find relatively clear shots of the stained glass. It was a new camera and I was still finding my feet with it, so all things considered, I was lucky!!

Those picture's are beautiful.

Does anyone else ever stay up to watch Christmas mass from the Vatican? It comes on at midnight here on the east coast but it is always so beautiful and you are in awe at how beautiful it is inside.
