Very cool post about the bells! I'm not Catholique, but I love the churches of Paris. There aren't a lot of places that have been around for 850 years.

Thanks,
-Jeff

Truly astonishing and beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing these photos!

I agree! I too saw them yesterday. I was so moved I went back in the afternoon. I loved watching and photographing the people touching them. It was very moving to watch all the people and see their feelings about the bells. What a fantastic idea to display them! I touched each one proudly and was awestruck by the experience and opportunity. What an amazing time to live in Paris. Usually I feel all the history has already happened. This feels like history today and now and should absolutely not be missed!

Thank you so much for this post about the bells. They will be up and ringing by the time I make it to Paris in May. Oh, how I'd love to touch one!

Colleen

Richard, do you know what they are going to do with the old bells that they take down?
I won't be in Paris until mid-May so will miss seeing them in person. Thanks for showing the photos of them.

How I wish I could be there right now! Your pictures are just so lovely! I've struck out this time...I arrive after they'll be put up and I leave 2 days before they'll ring. I'm counting on you to be there to listen.
