Mont Saint Michel

This morning we made our second visit to Mont Saint Michel, this time to see the abbey at the top, which we were too late to see yesterday. There is also a small and cozy parish church called Saint Peter closer to the main gate, so a Rosary was prayed for Papal Restoration.

Mont Saint Michel is a wonder: the architecture has withstood the elements and there are terraces of gardens (yes, with trees, shrubs, flowers, and lawns). The cloister surrounding a central garden was a quiet haven.

Mont Saint Michel also has a labyrinth of rooms opening into stony stairs or other rooms. It was easy to imagine living there as a monk during the times before electricity. What a sacrificial life!
