In December, Holly and I stayed at Janeen's apartment as you may remember and Église Saint Roch was directly across the narrow street from our large windows. In April when I returned to Janeen's apartment, Marie and I attended an evening Palm Sunday service. You may recall the view of the altar from my previous post shown below. Just before the evening service we had the opportunity to photograph the Nativity from a different angle. This marble sculpture of Michel Anguier dates from 1665.*

Only by getting this close can one appreciate the fine details and that small delicate hand reaching upward.

Bon dimanche
