Glass confessionals

This one is in Brasilia, but there is also one in Notre Dame in Paris. It is not back lit by stained glass, but does have the disadvantage of having a continual stream of tourists walking by.

Other people, (ME, for example,) would rather run a mile than a) go to confession in such a transparent construction and b) have a (visual) audience.

The Priest sat tout seul.

Meantime, at the rue du bac there were lots of people in the queue....
