Notre Dame has been destroyed, razed to the ground in an act of arson.
Oh? Not arson, you say? So on Monday of Holy week, as Catholic churches have been desecrated throughout France, in the middle of renovations, Notre Dame Cathedral is burnt to the ground. Yeah, sure. Just an accident.
I hope they don’t rebuild it. The one consolation is that with the state of France now, Notre Dame has basically stopped being a true Cathedral and instead become a monument. But it was a monument to Our Lady of France, built out of love for her and love of beauty.
A modern reincarnation would be a monument to tourism and mammon.
There is no point. Mourn her, but leave her alone. Notre Dame is gone, gone forever. And meanwhile?
Vive la revolution.
