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].

    When God spoke to St. Francis of Assisi, saying ,"rebuild my church, which is falling into ruins", He really meant, we now know, that THE FAITH was falling into ruins. This seems to be a similar sentiment, as France hasn`t the Faith she once had. Revolutions, socialism, and secularism, have supplanted God and His precepts, and as the oldest daughter of the Faith, France is being taught a lesson. I was taught by the FCJ nuns in Melbourne, and that Faith now seems a fading memory, even though I have never abandoned it.
