Fire is Destroying Notre Dame Cathedral


Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris France is burning.

One of the most ancient and important monuments to our Christian heritage appears to be burning to the ground.  The thought of this loss is stunning, and brings this Reformed Protestant to near tears.  My prayers go out to the firefighters, the citizens of Paris and France and to all my Catholic brothers and sisters in Christ.

Update on 16 April

Apparently the destruction was less than feared yesterday, but tragic all the same.  Perhaps the cathedral can be rebuilt without total loss of that which had stood for over 800 years.


The New York Post: “Photos show center of Notre Dame cathedral miraculously intact.”
