The main altar of La Madeleine, Paris, just before a weekday Mass
— (Photo by KG7NRB.) Kathryn took this photo of the main altar of the Church of St. Mary Magdalene, La Madeleine, located in the heart of Paris, over five years ago, in January 2013. It was one of those right-place-right-time situations we like to take advantage of. We happened to be walking by the church just a few minutes before Mass was starting, on a Monday at lunchtime.
