“This is my local church, I’m not a practicing catholic but they call them an open church, so I feel welcome and everyday those bells ring it appease me. So it is open to all, whoever. Please, just walk in there, enjoy the serenity, the smell of the old candles and listen to your heartbeat, and just think that you could be part of a bigger thing or whatever. Keep those bells ringing loud everyday. MERCI” – Andrei Saint Amant
