The White Arcades

Inside Notre Dame d'Auvergne.  The interior
surfaces are finished in white and pale blue
with pebbled glass windows of milky-white,
pink, gold and just a touch of green; and
eventhough the exterior is somewhat austere
and imposing, the interior is light and airy
and inviting.

The church seats one thousand people and
I'm sure on religious holidays they could
squeeze in a few more.  Translated to
English the motto above the altar says:
"My Soul Glorifies the Lord."

Thanks again to Dan for the backdrop of
organ hymns during my short visit there.

Photos of the exterior can be seen in the
previous post.
