Église Notre-Dame-de-Grâce-de-Passy - la crèche


Église Notre-Dame-de-Grâce-de-Passy


Although the works of art, the chapels, the marble altar, a great organ, and architecture of four centuries are well-documented, it is this quiet corner at the rear of the church which caught my attention.

Candles and camels, angels and cherubs, 
all surround the manger, completed by a "star in the east."


bon dimanche

I'm very fond of cribs. They always give a feeling of peace and are the real spirit of Christmas.
