No words can describe the most heartfelt loss. But, within no time, the world is showing its profound love of Notre-Dame de Paris – the internationally adored symbol of Paris. It is extremely encouraging that so many offers of help to rebuild have been made so quickly. OUR LADY is destined to be around for at least another 850 years. Merci Dieu!
As more news comes out, hopefully much of Notre-Dame de Paris remains intact. Recent news states the grand organ was not destroyed.
