Anything to confess?
I am sure you do! I came across this unexpected statue in a church that is not so famous although pretty beautiful. It's called l'Eglise Saint Gervais/Saint Protais (after the name of two twin brothers killed by Emperor Nero), was built in the 16th century and it is located in the 4th arrondissement, on former swamps.
Update: a reader tells me that this statue is the one of Jean Marie Vianney, also known as Le Curé D'Ars and who, among other things, "specialized" into confession. No wonder then...
