The Annonay basin is the hot spot for hot-air balloon flights. Multicolored bubbles were spotted in the Annonean sky on Sunday morning.
Very few people witnessed the arrival of an unimaginable crew from a property near the city of inventors. The pilot Pierre-Paul Cavatta and Jean-Louis Balsa from Davezo were the ones who initiated the flight. Father Jean-Francois Beal, pastor at Blessed Gabriel Longueville, was also present.
Mgr Balsa, who was able to fly them safely to Montbard in Eclassan at the end of their flight, said that he was happy to have "tue the sky". We are far from the anti-hot-air balloon Christian pamphlets at the end of 18th century. The most famous is this: "Because God did not give wings to men, it is impious that you claim better to do only him and infringe on his rights."
The bishop then resumed his more practical missions, presided over the confirmation ceremony of 7 young faithful at Saint-Francois d'Annonay.
