For this month's angel, Rosemary writes:
An unusual low-relief stone sculpture of angels adorns a ceiling niche in the Saint-Augustin Church. Draped in flowing gowns, the angels hold branches of lilies and palms as they pose languidly around an elaborate column bearing a medallion engraved with the word "Justitia," a reference to the angel of Justice, Raguel. A banner inscribed "gloria in excelsis deo" unfurls above the medallion.
Dating to the 1860’s, the church was designed by architect Victor Baltard, but the identity of the ornamental sculptor is unknown.
Among the various missions of the church, a six-day pilgrimage to Poland is planned for April 2022, to visit the cathedral of Cracow, various churches and sanctuaries, Auschwitz, and the birthplace of John Paul II.
46, boulevard Malesherbes
