Montréal, April 15, 2019
Just like you, I am in shock about the sad news of Notre-Dame de Paris’ fire. Words are not enough to mention a Church that is much more than a jewel of architecture. Notre-Dame is an exceptional cultural, historical and religious symbol well-known all over the world. My prayers are for the French people, the Diocese of Paris, and everyone who will have to work hard to rebuild an international treasure, eternal and powerful. Our heritage is very fragile. Together, let’s take great care of it to preserve our treasures.
As a sign of solidarity, our tenor bell rang this afternoon.
