February 4, 2013

According to the Luxemburger Wort:

[Luxembourg] Grand Duchess Maria Teresa will act as patroness at the consecration of Notre Dame Cathedral’s new bells in Paris on Saturday.

Nine new bells will be blessed by [the] Archbishop of Paris, at the French capital’s cathedral to mark its 850th anniversary, with Luxembourg’s Grand Duchess assisting the blessing as namesake of one of the bells to be named Marie.

The Marie bell, cast in the Netherlands and weighing six tonnes, was named in honour of the Virgin Mary. The other eight bells have also been named after saints or other religious personalities, including Pope Benedict XVI.
