Hopital Saint Joseph Chapel


My father is currently in the Hospital Saint Joseph in the 14th arrondissement (nothing to worry about, just a few arteries to unblock(!) He's now perfectly fine). Of course I visit him regularly and this gave me the opportunity to discover a nice little chapel at the center of the premises. It's not very surprising as this hospital was originally built by the Catholics - and also managed by them until 1958.

  1. My best wishes to your father Eric whose photo was such a good post you made.
    Your first words today really made me anxious and I'm glad to read his health is fine now.
    Though, it is not easy to stay at the hospital. So I'm sending him a true message of get well soon as well as a good and safe rest. I've heard of this hospital in good words, Btw. Hope you can confirm. Take care.

  9. I am relieved that your father is doing well and that the situation was dealt with before things got out of hand.

    As for the photo: if it were not for the people sitting over on the left I would swear that this is a painting.

  10. Best wishes and prayers for your father.
    Yes, I would like to know where it is also.
    Paris has some beautiful churches thanks to catholicism.
    It looks like a stunning day and I hear the weather has warmed up too!

  14. @Flore and all of you. Thank you for all your get well wished. Very thoughtful. I'll pass on the message.

    @PHX. Yes, it's inside Paris, near the Porte de Vanves.

    @Cali "So nice to see the beautiful blue sky in Paris once again" You bet! Actually the nice thing is that there is a huge terrace in the hospital so you can sit in the sun while discussing with the patients...

  15. All the best to your dear dad, Eric. The terrace sounds lovely, too. Sun is a fine remedy for many things, not the least, the heart!
