Notre Dame Emerges from Tragic Blaze

Notre Dame

The start of Holy Week was met with tragedy as smoke billowed from the roof of the great Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. The spire toppled down, much of the roof caved in, and for nearly 15 hours, firemen continued to battle the blaze before completely extinguishing it. Thanks to their heroic work and to the many prayers of the faithful from all over the globe, much of the Notre Dame structure and artifacts, including the crown of thorns and the Blessed Sacrament, were saved.

Though Notre Dame will never be the same, massive funds have already been raised to help restore it, and French President Emmanuel Macron has pledged to do so in five years or less. See the stark contrast of Notre Dame before the fire and then after the flames were put out. What do you notice? Even through this catastrophe, the cross still stands.
