I'm close to tears. They're saying now, the next 90 minutes will be crucial to saving Notre-Dame.

I just heard that the structure has been saved, but such terrible damage has already been done. So much has already been lost forever, including the priceless stained glass windows. What a disaster, cannot believe it.

I am not Christian, but like I said on Facebook to friends, it does not matter what religion one practices when a tragedy of this size hits. It affects every single one of us.

Prayers for Notre Dame

I couldn't agree more with you. My heart goes out to every resident of France and every Christian worldwide.

I don't see how it can be rebuilt. The entire center of the place in gone. Best to remember the beauty that it was, remove what's left and build something new in its place. It's comparable to the Twin Towers in scope, but far less lives were lost, if any, I would hope.

I have my doubts as well, but Windsor Castle was restored after its devastating fire in 1992, so they may very well surprise us.

Well, Marcon (sp?) has already decided to restore her, so the discussion is moot at this point. But we won't see it completed in our lifetime, I reckon.

I think that in time she will be restored to her former glory, same as with the Dresden Frauenkirche Lutheran church that got completely destroyed by Allied bombings during the War..

The wooden roof structure, stained glass windows and spire are completely destroyed, but tv pictures are showing a remarkably intact interior. As long as the walls have not been too badly damaged or deformed, a good reconstruction should be possible. The cathedral was of course already under repair owing to crumbling masonry, so it's possibly not going to be as straight forward as constructing a new roof and replacing stained glass. Best of luck to the grand old lady though..

This magnificent cathedral is on my wife's bucket list to visit. Hopefully, this still can be accomplished with the assistance of the following companies and families.

French billionaires and companies pledge $450 million to rebuild Notre Dame

Have you & your wife been to Paris? if not it's alright, it's definitely a beautiful city to visit with your love ones, it has so much history to witness but if you ever go with her, also try to visit this church; Basilica of the Sacred Heart also located within Paris.. it's a very beautiful church as well, it's not as old as Notre Dame but it's location on a hill is definitely worth the visit..

I've been to Paris many times but somehow never visited Notre Dame.
Big mistake.
I am somehow (pleasantly) surprised at the worldwide expression of concern.

While we're on the subject of churches, here are some photos of the church of my youth. Her name is St. Mary of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Bridgeport Chicago, IL. If you ever visit Chicago, she's the most recognizable and easily seen from the Stevenson Expressway (I-55) because of her great dome and towers made of copper which have turned green over the last 137 years. While not as grandiose as Notre Dame, it is still quite impressive in size and rather imposing.

Here's some stats I found online:

ADDRESS
1039 W. 32nd St.

NEIGHBORHOOD
Bridgeport

ARCHITECT
Henry Engelbert, 1903

DESCRIPTION
This church was founded in 1882 to serve the Polish families of Bridgeport. It has a Romanesque exterior of decorative brick with stone corbelling. The interior is Byzantine and resembles a Greek Cross with half domes and arches surrounding a 113-foot-high central dome, recently restored. The dome is made entirely of wood with ornamental copper and is lit by a ring of lantern windows. The lavishly-decorated nave is enriched with Stations of the Cross, statuary and original stained-glass windows by Joseph Artmaier. The nave and sanctuary also feature fine scagliola work, elaborate altars, a suspended pulpit topped by a cupola, and decorative stenciling and murals by John Mallin. The Austin organ was installed in 1928.

Photos and a short video I found:

St. Mary of Perpetual Help

Strange that an alarm was triggered 23 minutes before the actual fire engulfed the church. So did the person show up and look around to detect any smoke, found none and just shrugged it off?

Notre Dame Alarm Raised 23 Minutes Before Blaze Was Detected!

I have one simple question, how did the fire start in the first place? Spontaneous Combustion..? the fire had to come from somewhere right or it had to be started by someone right..? also the renovation firm Le Bras Freres said none of their people was working on that day, so how can the fire have started if nobody was renovating the building on the very moment the blaze began on the roof area of the Cathedral..?

We have not yet been to Europe, and I agree that there is so much history to learn and explore over in Paris. Thank you for posting photos of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, and it would be very memorable to climb those stairs to the entrance of that beautiful church. Last I saw was the private funding to restore was at $700 million and counting. Hopefully, they can rebuild the roof and spire with more modern materials.

I just found out that the Reims Cathedral in Reims, France, a Gothic style Cathedral looking similar to Notre Dame was also destroyed by fire during The Great War and restored after..

Nantes cathedral also had its roof destroyed in 1972.
It took 47 years to restore it.

Sad, but great they are already half way to raising funds needed to rebuild. Saw the story last night of the group of firefighters going into the section to get the cherished historical items. Brave souls!

Here is the church of part of my up bringing and youth where I have family.
