Statue of Saint Denis, near the Montmontre

The Paris Air show is held north of Paris, beyond the community of Saint Denis. Saint Denis, also known as Dionysius, was the Bishop of Paris in the 3rd Century. Saint Denis is a famous Christian Martyr in these parts.

He was martyred in connection with the Decian persecution of Christians, shortly after 250 CE. After his head was chopped off, Denis is said to have picked it up and walked ten kilometres (six miles), preaching a sermon the entire way, making him one of many cephalophores in hagiology.

It’s interesting that a group from our small community is coming to the famous Paris Air Show in search of business connections. I wish them well, but just in case, for some reason, that doesn’t pan out, they can still find something of worth in their trip by traveling just a few miles south to Saint Denis. The Saint Denis Basilica is very famous. Started in the 12th century, it was the first church of Gothic design. It is the burial place of the Kings of France.
