Uzes Cathedral

Standard

leaving Pont du Gard we headed north to Uzes.  First stop was the cathedral, a former RC cathedral and now a parish church.  To our surprise we learned the name of it is Cathedrale Saint-Théodorit d’Uzès, which reminded us of our sweet baby boy back home.  The chapels and altar took on a more interesting hue for us, and, although just simple Quakers ourselves, I lit a candle in honor of our Theodore in this special place. 

  
Theo’s candle is on the far right.  The frescoes on the walls and ceiling of the two chapels flanking the altar are a brilliant blue.  

The organ in the cathedral was built in the 1600’s and has shutters which are closed during Lent when the organ does not sound.
