I am shocked, horrified, and devastated by the recent news of Notre Dame in Paris burning. Really, my stomach is sick.
I was there in 2002, studying art history. At that time, I had fallen away from the Church, but was so attracted by her beauty. I couldn’t get enough. Notre Dame was simply breathtakingly beautiful. Just what would inspire a people to build such a thing?
Earlier today I dug an old photo out of me standing in front of Notre Dame’s westwork. I was taking notes, as my art history professor explained Gothic architecture to us.
What a tragedy.
My first thoughts were exactly those of Steve Skojec from One Peter Five. If you’re interested click HERE for it.
May our Lady intercede for France! Holy Mary, pray for us!
