Paris, France-A Choir of Angels Singing
Paris, France, another ‘Choir of Angels” sing……
It has been a while reflecting back….a number of years has past….But, remembering-
A Beautiful Day in spring, approximately 12 years ago, in Paris, France.
The Garden’s of Monet were just as you imagined them to be, in all of the pictures you see, but more…
It had been raining that day, in the spring, but the scent of the rain, and the smell of Mother Earth,
along with the Spring Flowers…..for me, just being there in Paris, at this time of the year,
it would surely bring love into anyone’s heart, and the glow of that reflection upon one’s face.
Little did I know, a greater surprise of wonder and awe, was in store for me…….
Our tour bus, had extra time this day, and decided to take another road and show us a very beautiful kept secret, in another small village…
it was “The Cathedral Notre-Dame De Chartres”. This Cathedral, had been originally started in the 1st Century, in which, it would make this Cathedral (2) two-thousand years of age!
This Cathedral contained within, held some very special treasures, one that I never knew ever existed!
This treasure was one (1) of the very veils, said to be worn, by the Blessed Virgin Mother, Mary.
Inside this cathedral actually held (2) two veils, only (1) that was publicly displayed.
My eyes teared with joy, and disbelief, and my heart pounded with excitement!
Inside the ancient cathedral, as you entered reverently, there, on the floor, was a labyrinth (maze), total length 294 metres, which
pilgrims completed on their knees, to symbolize the quest for celestial Jerusalem.
I myself, never dreamed of ever being privileged enough to go to Paris, France, let alone be able to be here, on this day of which I speak of…..
As I gazed upon the labyrinth on the floor, suddenly…I heard a “Beautiful Choir” singing…. my immediate thought;
it must have been the students singing with their tour guide on the side of me……
as I stood there capturing within my sight, every area of this most magnificent cathedral…but still searching for the choir…..
I could not help, but direct my eyes above, in back of the church, where we entered…there on the loft above,
was the most beautiful organ, later found, that it was 14th century organ loft, 16th century case.
However, there was no choir singing, nor practicing in the church.
The singing came from every direction, perhaps the acoustics in the church, I thought….
I finally took it upon myself to approach the group of students, and asked them, “Where is that heavenly choir coming from?”
Most of the students did not answer me of what I was asking them, mainly due to language barriers….but the guide, and two other
students, did answer me, in English.
“We’re sorry-but we do not hear any choir or music of any kind”.
I responded to them again, saying, “Yes, there, can you not hear the choir”?….
”No Madam’, no singing, no music, no choir”.
I must inform all of you, reading this writing, I am hearing impaired, during this visit in Paris, France, I did not have any hearing aid at
all…..mine was unrepairable at the time, and I was in need of ordering a new one…..
so, when I do hear something, as miraculous as this is to me, a whole “Choir of Angels” singing, I will believe, with my whole heart,
and soul, that this day, I was privileged, to me in grace, I did hear a Choir of Angels….and this was again, my (2nd) second
experience of hearing them.
The most beautiful singing you could ever possibly imagine, praising and singing. For they held such a great treasure, the most Holy
Mother of God’s Veil-they sang their praise and glory! In addition, I was privileged to hear with my impairment, a “Choir of Angels”.
