Look Up!

Yesterday's headless saint stands guard over this little church in Quissac. Appears to be just another rather plain country church until you stand in the nave and LOOK UP....
and see the beautifully painted vaulted ceiling.
full of exquisite detail and design.
Even the wrought iron chandelier against the whitewashed wall shimmers in the light of the church.

How many people drive through these tiny villages, see the church and pass it by...'looks plain, ugly, boring.' Do yourself a favor...if the church is open, stop! You never know what beauty you may find inside.
