The next day was bright; I woke up early in the morning to see how Paris looks. I could see the city smiling from the balcony of my hotel. I took a stroll down the lane nearby the hotel and had a
friendly conversation with an old couple. They were so hospitable and even invited me for a French dinner. From them, I came to know about Chapel of
our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.
They told me it is a holy place and covers a measureless history. I freshened up myself and hired a cab to the place which is commonly known as Rue Du Bac, the heart or centre of Paris. It is basically the name of the street where the place is located. It didn’t take a good deal of my time to arrive at the place.
Outside the shrine, I found several tourists groups from various countries. It was happy to see people from various backgrounds coming together. That is why I enjoy travelling. As per the
history, this chapel was the place where Virgin Mary came to Catherine Laboure and asked for a medal. That medal is given the name of Miraculous Medal.
One can see the body of Catherine at the right side, which is worshipped by the masses as it portrays that God has gifted special refinements to Saint Catherine. There is one more incorrupt body that can be seen on left side, it is of Saint Louise de Marillac. The bodies lying on both sides are something distinctive that I have found in no other church.
I always love shopping, and luckily I found a cute little store that was selling rosaries and medals. Thank god I had Euros with me so I could
purchase a couple of medals and pretty merchandises as a wonderful memory of Paris. It was evening by the time I finished exploring the chapel and purchasing some items.
I then took a metro to reach my hotel. The reason for taking a metro was to know how the experience would be. Though I travel in metro every day in Delhi, I wanted to discover how the metro in Paris is. It was far much better than of Delhi’s!
