My daughter and her family were in Paris when the fire occurred. They had been to Notre Dame earlier in the day and my son-in-law had taken a lot of photos in the area. He went back the following day to take a series of ‘after’ photos to show the devastation.

We were there about a year and a half ago! Obviously before the fire and it was amazing. Beautiful stained glass windows and so serene inside. Would love to go back to Paris!

Please don't take me wrong Notre-Dame is definitely a structure to be admired and is really sad about the devastation that the fire caused, But to restore it is going to cost 8 billion dollars and am thinking, you know how many children can those 8 billion dollars save from starvation and premature death??? What is it more important to human kind...saving lives or saving a building??? Can we be a bit empathetic and think more on others in need??? Remember the commandment "Love your neighbour like you love yourself" Just food for thought...

If York Minster in the UK is anything to go by Macron's response that the cathedral will be rebuilt in 5 years is simply unobtainable. York's fire was decades ago and they are still working on its restoration. However I wish them the greatest good luck in achieving what they can so the magnificent cathedral can rise from the ashes

Was there with my twin brother. It was truelly a spiritual experience. Went there 3X in the few eeeks we were there. My brother videotaped the Palm Sunday Mass there, which has been such a moving experience every time that I have watched it. I hope it can be repaired to its former glory. It was named for our Blessed Mother Mary.
