Notre Dame... again?



Some time ago I did a post on the fantastic pulpit in the Church of Notre Dame de Strasbourg - I mentioned, offhand, that on the equinox (I probably said solstice) the sun will shine through a particular pane of glass onto the carved crucifix. I've never seen it, but here's a video, of what it should look like tomorrow.

Ummmm...That light was above the akimbo Jesus, not on him. And even if the light went through glazed feet to shine on said Jesus, is it a miracle or just architectural planning?

It was a miracle of architectural planning. And, to be fair, Jesus' posture isn't very good there.
