Words and Photos for a Devastated Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris

A devastating fire broke out in Notre-Dame cathedral on Monday night, and the world watched in horror as this iconic city monument burned. Thankfully Paris’s brave firefighters were able to extinguish the flames late in the night, and save the structure from complete destruction. We are eternally grateful for their dedication.

Our team at France Media Group is shocked and saddened beyond words about this tragedy. But we have faith that Notre-Dame will be rebuilt, just as President Emmanuel Macron has vowed. International fundraising campaigns have already been announced. (Here is the website where you can make donations.)

To celebrate this great icon, our sister site Bonjour Paris has published “An Homage to Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris” where several contributors have shared their memories and insights.

Dear reader, we would love to hear from you! Please share your thoughts about this symbolic monument. We will be creating a showcase in the magazine in homage to Notre-Dame, and would be honoured to feature your stories and photos. Please send them to the attention of our sister publication, Bonjour Paris: [email protected].

    1160 a.d is when they started to build Norte Dame. Can you imagine anything that old??? The endless generations of people who have walked there is mind blowing. I get it, it is not more important than the welfare of an individual. What I want you to understand is standing in this place can be, and was for me, an awareness of deep understanding that we human beings have walked this earth a very long time and there is a spiritual belief that there is an awesome God worthy of our praise and honor. No this is not how I would honor Him, but sooo many in the past did. To stand there was a moment in my life I will never forget and this devastation is distressing, personally for many.
