Today we left Rouen and headed off to Mont Saint Michel. On the way we stopped off in Lisieux. Our first stop was the Basilica, which was built in the 1920’s (very Art Deco). Entering the Basilica was an awe inspiring experience for us both. We attended the pilgrims’ liturgy, which was done respectfully and with reverence. One thing that surprised us was the huge ciborium; it looked like an ice bucket with a lid. But I guess, since the Basilica was packed, why they would need one that big. From here, we went to the Chapel of the Carmelites to see Saint Therese’s tomb. We then paid a quick visit to the Cathedral. After this, we continued on to Mont Saint Michel.
