I have the photos at home, will post them when I am on my PC, I am very heart broken, I can only imagine what this means to the Parisians and the French people.

When I was a child, my family took me there and we went on the roof; I took my son on Christmas day 2018, I am very saddened by the prospect of it not being there to see it when he is old enough with a family. :(

This feels like waiting outside the ER Op-Room and hoping a doctor comes out with good news.

I'm sure the French will rebuild it, and if they need it then i hope other countries will contibute to it too. It is not only a French and christian monument, but a common cultural heritage of mankind. I visited it some 20 years ago as a teenager, TBH the only thing i remember from the interior that it was extremely overcrowded back then with tourists, but i really liked it from the outside.

Incredibly, I found some on my social media. Possibly I shall find the old cellphone with many originals?

This part of Notre Dame was called "The Louvre Treasury". Most of the relics kept in it initially belonged to Saint-Chapelle, that was built for them, but after the Revolution, when sans-culottes vandalized everything, the Treasury was moved to Notre Dame.

This was the part of the reliquary holding parts of the True Crown, True Cross and True Nail.

All these relics were bought by Louis the Saint in Constantinople. When he brought them home, he built Saint-Chapelle to hold them. Politically, in marked the transformation of a small townlet on the Seine into a major European city. SmartSelect_20190416-220401_Facebook.jpg
