My heart is breaking. It is dark there now, and I can but imagine the vampires gathering in the shadow of the great cathedral to mourn the passing of one of the landmarks of their lives. Notre dame de paris shirt At least I got to visit Notre Dame once in life. It’s one of my most precious memories. It’s most tragic that the cathedral gets lost now right before Easter.

As a Parisian I can tell you this is our heart going up in flames. All and every single one of us has a story, a memory, sad or happy with Notre Dame, Christian, Jewish or Muslim this is a monument all Parisians cherish and will always cherish. This is where the church asked the Jewish for forgiveness, for the holocaust, Notre dame de paris shirt this is where the Muslims asked the Christians for forgiveness when the Tibehirin priests were murdered. This is also where we mourned our friends, brothers, relatives after the terrorists attacks a couple of years ago…this is and remains a place of peace and fraternity for all of us. We, parisians, are in pain tonight. My husband said you don’t visit Notre Dame, you experience it. I’m just so sad at the loss of this medieval structure and it’s artifacts. I was so hoping to experience it as well.
Take this tee and be cool
Notre Dame lost is a travesty, but remember that beautiful structure is not the Church. The Church is you and I and the love that we give and the relationships we manifest. Remember this Holy Week. Christ is not in a building, He is in the building of human kindness and sacrifice. One of my most beloved memories is my ine and only trips to Paris. I climbed the spire to the bell tower on the tour. The lovely gentleman who led the tour picked me to “ring the bell” by running an iron rod along the rim of it. He also joked that my now ex husband was quasimodo. I filled my camera with pictures of that church.
