WARNING- This probably should be read….maybe
Notre Dame took almost 200 years to build as a replica to one’s faith in Christianity and as painful as it might seem it took this fire to bring it back to it’s roots. For Notre Dame was built in the capital of Paris, France now home to one of the most secular places in the world. Notre Dame had become more of a museum for the tourist then a spiritual holy site for the true believer. Where those accessing it to worship were seen as basically props for the architectural tourist taking photo shots. This incredibly complex beautiful structure was being destroyed before our eyes yet one simple structure beamed out it’s cross. We all mourn the destruction of such a grand structure but maybe just maybe the faithful will help rebuild it not just with the tools of their hands but their hearts and souls. So it becomes a beautiful structure again with faith keeping it stronger then ever.
