Notre Dame cathedral

I've wanted to be inside Notre Dame cathedral since I was a child. I had seen pictures, of course, but they cannot do justice to the majesty of this monument. We found ourselves outside the cathedral just after they opened the doors to visitors. It was a Sunday morning, and mass was just getting underway. It was ethereal to be in this space with the music, and for the intended use of the building.
