Weekend In Saint Germain-des-Pres

15 comments
 One of my favourite things to do is to attend mass in French, especially in Paris. There is this mix of solemnity, tradition, festive and so classical way they celebrate mass there. Maybe because most of the churches in Paris are old, historical and  traditional that makes it so special. One of the Churches I discovered was the L'Eglise Saint Germain Des Pres located right at Boulevard Saint Germain and Rue Bonaparte in the Left Bank. The Church is an active Parish. I was lucky enough to attend Sunday mass there. The Church was built as a Benedictine Abbey in 543. Last December 2014, the Church celebrated its 1000 millennium. No wonder inside it is dark and old with Gothic ceilings and pillars.  I thought that the ceilings and pillars might need some cleaning. But then, it might be hard to clean the place since it is an active parish where Sunday mass were packed and many activities are held in there. But it's dark interior adds character to the Church since it is so old. Add some angelic choirs singing and the procession of the holy candles carried by sacristans which adds a spiritual solemnity to the whole experience. Then afterwards, just cross the street and have lunch at the famous Les Deux Magots then go shopping at the Louis Vuitton boutique right beside it. Paris always fascinate as there are always places to discover.
