A massive fire consumed much of the structure today, including the famed steeple, it was undergoing renovations and appears to be a construction accident. how very sad.

So devastating! The history of the building is incredible. I was just there last summer and watched a prayer service while there. Amazing architecture.

several French billionaires have already pledged $400 euro to help the rebuilding efforts. Have a coworker who is in Paris and had gone Sunday to mass, possibly the last one held there for a while.

My sister and BIL accidentally attended an organ concert there one day...what a cool accident! Beautiful place, I've been once while visiting them and have a pencil sketch/portrait of the building at home.

I don't know how much the $400 euros are going to help. Maybe they should pitch in a little more? wink

an idiot from new jersey walked into St patrick's cathedral in NY with 4 gallons of gas, 2 cans of lighter fluid, and disposable lighters. when stopped by security and police, he said he ran out of gas and was just cutting through the church to put it in his car...they look at the car and it is not out of gas...
