    I say this as not being of the Catholic faith, but is so terrible a thing to have happened at this Holy time of year for all of us.

    Especially if not as supposed by many, as simply a "renovation* accident ...

    I am so skeptical of that explanation at the moment.
    From a couple sources.

    Emergency services said they were trying to salvage as much artwork as possible, with France 24 reporting that nearly all of it was able to be removed and saved. The Crown of Thorns, said to have been worn by Jesus Christ before the crucifixion, and the tunic of St. Louis were both saved, according to the cathedral's rector.
    Interestingly reports that there were no construction workers onsite when the fire broke out. But it started on the roof is interesting.

    Bit more.

    Last week, for instance, 16 copper statues representing the Twelve Apostles and four evangelists were removed with a crane so that the spire could be renovated.
    So the art around the spire that was lost was removed. Meaning that they are safe.

    The hole in the interior caused by the spire collapse.



    The large stain glass windows seem to be intact, but unknown if any damage may have been done.

    Far as rebuilding cost...

    François-Henri Pinault — chairman and CEO of Kering, the French-based luxury group behind Gucci, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent and other world-renowned brands — has pledged over $110 million towards the rebuilding of the Notre Dame cathedral.

    The original workover budget was $185 mill with the French government kicking in $50 mill of that. So what has been spent to this point other than removing some of the most susceptible and valuable pieces is now dust in the wind.

    I personally do not buy an attack by anyone but believe it was an accident.

    I’m also waiting for what the post apocalypse investigation reveals.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    Why am I being blamed? I do zombies, not burning churches.

    And the cost, yea you're right. Off handed guess, I would say they will likely need north of $500 million to repair whats been done.

    Sorry to say I seldom believe in *coincidences* ...

    Not this week, not in Paris, and definitely not in such a well loved symbol of Christianity in the world.

    This has to be the work of the enemies of Christ somewhere in this horrible tragedy. Perhaps even in some of those hired to do the renovation work? I could be wrong, but who knows?

    I do not for one minute put this beyond those that are determined to destroy all religion with the exception of their own ...

    And finally have their much desired world wide Caliphate put in it's place.

    Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on Fire, Worker Claims it Was “Deliberately” Started

    The Saint Sulpice church in Paris was deliberately set on fire earlier this year, although media reports downplayed the story.

    My first thought about the fire was not the Muslims but FEMEN, who has been doing violence to churches for quite some time. However, either group would have the same effect and are fighting for the same thing.

    Hey girl ...

    Somewhat embarrassed, but good to see you in here! Today's events in Paris really got to me.

    Can't sleep tonight to save my life, (aargh!) so got up to have some hot milk & read in here, and noticed the need to change the word "travesty" to "tragedy" in my above post. Duh!

    Oh Mercy! Haven't done it yet, but will now. Tune in again tomorrow! See ya!
