We all watched with horror as the roof of Notre-Dame de Paris burned.

Here is a video update about the building.

    So disappointing to hear the words “Notre Dame is more than just a cathedral, it’s Disney blah, blah, blah” UGH!!!
    The true glory and purpose of this glorious building has been lost on an almost totally secularized France.

    [Alright. For your penance, list 5 interesting things you learned from that video.]

    That was quite a circus at the sawmill.
    Hopefully the restoration will be followed by a spiritual restoration.

    I shall never forget the shock and deep-seated sadness that overwhelmed us that morning, a few weeks after the devastating fire in 2019, as we stared out of the windows of the bus driving along beside the River Seine at the blackened cathedral of Notre Dame. For the first time it was taking us to another church, St Sulpice, for the start of the Chartres pilgrimage, but every previous year we had always gathered in front of Notre Dame in Paris with thousands of other pilgrims from all over the world, before entering the magnificent cathedral for prayers, hymns and the blessing of our banners before starting off on our gruelling three day march to Notre Dame in Chartres. A pilgrimage between two of Our Lady’s most renowned churches in Holy Christendom.

    It is heartening to hear how well the reconstruction is going, with the authorities in charge taking care to use nothing but the best in its rebuilding for the greater glory of God, and now that some of the bizarre modernist ideas put forward soon after the blaze appear to have all been debunked. Let’s pray that nothing bad intervenes in the meantime and Notre Dame will soon be returned to her former splendour.

    I remember that day of the fire, getting a text from one of my kids: “Notre Dame is on fire.” I immediately thought of my daughter’s school in South Bend! Ah, well, an excusable moment of provincialism!
