The Saint Louis d’Antin Church, a former convent chapel built under the reign of Louis XVI, became a parish church in 1802. It occupies a unique place in the Parisian landscape: situated on a busy commercial street near the Gare Saint Lazare in the heart of the department store district, Mass is celebrated seven times a day. The local priest compares it to an "airport church;" people of all ages, backgrounds and nationalities pop in whenever they are in the area. Many like to touch this colorful 19th century painted statue of Saint Michael the archangel, or to light a candle at his feet. Michael, portrayed as a young Roman solider dressed in blue with metal armor, an orange cape twirling from his chest to his feet, pierces a howling Satan with his enormous spear.
