Notre Dame Cathedral Spire Collapse

What a way to start off Holy Week….

As many already know, on April 15, 2019, the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, France caught fire, resulting in the collapse of its roof and signature spire. Mostly completed in 1260, the Notre Dame Cathedral has been an icon of medieval architecture, known throughout the world, for centuries. To lose this structure is a catastrophe, not just for the citizens of France, but the Roman Catholic Church in particular. I wish I had seen it in person. I grieve with my Roman Catholic friends. Hug your Roman Catholic neighbor today.

What will be interesting is to see what type of kooky conspiracy theories get dreamed up, and how many of those ideas will come from otherwise earnest Christians.

Absolutely heartbreaking.
