The "new French" won't miss it and don't care. Only European people and those of European descent care about this.

First day of Holy Week, very symbolic, very prophetic. The heart of France ripped out. France is not a Christian country anymore.

-No electricity during renovations to avoid accidents
-No workers in the Cathedrale at the time of the fire
-The Cathedrale was already evacuated TWO TIMES 1hour before the fire. We still don't know why
-The fire started in two different places
-a month after Christchurch
-first day of the Holy Week
-a bunch of churches have already been desecrated (the last one was yesterday in Lyon)

I don't understand why this is an excuse to be political or anti-religious. Surely we should be mourning a loss instead of finding someone to blame?

Sad times. I wouldn’t worry too much though. All they need to do is get student applications from Lori Loughalin’s kids, and they’ll be able to rebuild

Awwww...I just want to cry for the French people. The loss of this beautiful symbol is gut wrenching. I Visited Notre Dame in 1976. It was an awe inspiring church, and so iconic for the people and country of France. Brings tears to my eyes to witness this loss to the world. I hope it can be restored and brought back to at least look like it once did. It will never be the same, but France needs to be brought together again. Maybe the love and desire to restore Notre Dame will restore more than a building. Thoughts and prayers for turning around this great loss to us all.

Heartbreaking. Trying to remember ultimately that a building is not the "Church".We the people are THE Church and they cannot take that away from us. Just sad about the history and that Europeans are allowing this to happen.

A couple of pitiful streams of water is all the fire department of the Capitol of France has for the fire? Trump said: ""So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!" Trump wrote." Seriously, maybe the fire was an accident because of the renovation work, but this horridly near-nothing response is totally suspicious.

Sad, a very sad day. This was a symbol of our Western culture, whether you're religious or not. Seems to be a metaphor for the declination of Europe in general.

Don't worry folks... I'm sure a beautiful new "Religious Structure" will soon take its place.

Don't expect to see any images in it though.

Quite a shame the "timing" of it all.

They’re no different than CNN at this point. Wake up, people. It’s all controlled.

Two things. The rose window is one of the most beautiful pieces of art crafted by humans. The formula for the stained glass used in medieval times may be unknown the genius in crafting it into a truly exceptional expression of human love and creativity is not easily repeated

The second is that cathedrals were built by people long gone Since the buildings were built over a
long period of time most did not see the fruits of their labors

Yet people persisted in building their edifice to God
Whatever your spiritual path It is still a great comfort at least to me that common honest men and the wives and daughters that supported them chose to honor God and their posterity by building a place of worship to a God that at least they believed valued their work as tradesmen and artisans
No world is perfect
The loss of Norte Dame de Paris is in most ways epic

To the souls of those who toiled for all of their lives to build a beautiful edifice of their love and work and in many cases their love of God I salute you

Please understand that while Notre Dame May be rebuilt and I would never oppose that

It will not be the same
It will be a monument to artistry It will not be the work of those who labored so long ago

As sad as that may be At least to some of us
Life goes on and the next generation will need to salvage life art and the good the bad and the test

Hopefully the beautiful window at Rouen will not burn and shatter. There are pictures and at the very least they will be presearved
