In Vogue, In Vosges

We'll hear of many great legends of Paris today, including that of Saint Denis (the one with his head in his hands).  In the days when Rome still persecuted Christians, he worked here to evangelize this pagan land.  The Roman army captured him and beheaded him with two of his colleagues on the hill outside of town know now as Montmartre (the Mount of Martyrs).  Miraculously, the saint took his head in hand and marched north of town to the site he chose for his tomb.  All this happened a little over two hundred years after the death of Jesus Christ.  Christianity was the world's newest religion.
