Notre Dame de Paris up in flames!

Works of restoration were ongoing under the "flèche" (spire) above the transept of one of the greatest churches in Christendom, Notre Dame de Paris, where the great Relic of the Crown of Thorns is kept. All signs seem to point to something gone wrong in the restoration that led to this tragic event.

Update: the spire has collapsed and the roof has been already completely consumed by the flames.


Our note:

Notre-Dame de Paris will rise again! That is a certainty! The Revolution desecrated it, and yet Viollet-le-Duc made it more beautiful than ever in the 19th century.

It will rise again, through the intercession of Our Lady of Paris!
