While in Bergen, Norway to run their 10th Marathon, I was blest to attend Holy Mass at the lovely church of St. Paul the Apostle. If you’re ever in Bergen, drop in to say a prayer and light a candle for all your intentions.

Nice place

Nice church, welcoming people but too strict about coronavirus restrictions. That was almost impossible to participate the Holy Mass. Pre-registration is required but not communicated on the website nor the church itself

For nothing more glorious, nothing nobler, nothing surely more honorable can be imagined than to belong to the One, Holy Catholic, Apostolic and Roman Church - Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Mystici Corporis Christi, no. 91

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
