Condolences over the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral

We are saddened by the numerous images of the beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral of France engulfed in a treacherous fire. We thank God no lives were lost, nor were there any major injuries as a result of the fire. Thank God, this gothic Cathedral has been spared from complete destruction, and the sacred relics housed in this sacred place, including a piece of the true cross of our Lord, were also saved.

As we immerse ourselves prayer and fasting during this Holy Week, let us remember the nation of France. This is not merely an iconic building for this nation, but a sacred place of worship, where millions have shed their tears in repentance and thanksgiving to God. There is no doubt, this towering Cathedral will stand again, as a testimony to Jesus Christ, and to the faith of all people.
