“An in-depth study of this famous cathedral. ‘What is the special character of Chartres Cathedral that we should call it the greatest of the medieval churches?’ Narrated by New York Times art critic John Canaday, Chartres becomes a visible fusion of faith, engineering and architecture.

What can we say about France? The image above says more than any words can.
What horrors, what unspeakable terror; these words seem to lack meaning.

Even for the Christian, who claims a future hope, there is no escape from weeping.
Pray for Paris. Pray for France. Pray for the world.
