    Notre Dame: too symbolic to be an accident

    Monday, the first day of Holy Week before Easter, one of the greatest monuments of European history and architecture, Notre-Dame de Paris, caught fire and was badly devastated. The consequences of the fire can be compared to the destruction of the Palmyra monuments in Syria by militants of the Islamic State or the Taliban bombardments of Buddha statues in Afghanistan, because there are certain things that do not belong to a single nation, but they are part of the human heritage.
    It should be noted that the cathedral survived the Hundred Years War, British rule, civil war and wars with the Huguenots, the Jacobins ... During the French Revolution, Robespierre threatened to destroy the cathedral. But after receiving compensation from the believing people, Notre-Dame was announced the Temple of Reason. During the Revolution in the building the French organized a food warehouse. The temple survived two world wars with almost no losses. At the end of the 20th century, the building was restored.

    Now, Macron's time has arrived. The cathedral needs to be restored again. But the French authorities could not allocate the necessary resources - more than 150 million euros, they had less than 10 million. As always, it was necessary to ask the help of the Americans, who took the work in charge.
    It seems that Monday even unbelieving French fell to their knees. All France considered that the fire in a place so well known and carefully kept fire confirmed that everything had happened without accident.
    It's not a coincidence. God has just finally recalled his presence in this restless, greedy and belligerent world, and as if asking us, "Why do you need my temples if you don't need me? What do you believe besides new technologies and new territories? How did you transform France and all of Europe?
    Fortunately, there is also a believing Christian part of France and Europe, who remembers that everything happens in the world under the Lord's permission. Such disasters remind people that they are crossing the forbidden "red lines" - such as Babylon and Sodom with Gomorrah.

    Therefore, whatever the versions of the ignition, the simplest conclusion is suggested. The tragedy was the sign of heaven that many contradictions have accumulated in Europe, especially in France.
    In fact, all the madness that has happened in old Europe over the past decades was to end with catastrophes such as the rebellious demonstrations of "yellow vests" or the symbolic catastrophe carrying the cultural and historical symbol "Notre Dame ".
    The Lord mercy endured for a long time. In fact, the endless protests of "yellow vests" and the passivity of irresponsible government were enough to provoke celestial wrath. It was enough for the illegitimate presence of French soldiers on the territory of sovereign Syria and their participation in the conflict. It was enough of the war in Libya, which was unleashed by NATO where France took an active part. For celestial anger, it was enough to continue the pretentious ambitions of Macron to reshape Europe after the next elections to the European Parliament in May. The Lord bore the betrayal of France, who knelt before the United States, neglecting her religious, family and historical values.
    But patience is over. This incident was the sign of heaven that France understands where it was going.

    I don't know where you got this bit of "info" from, but the total of "private funds" donated to the effort to rebuild the church is very close to one billion Euros!

    Most of that coming from some very rich families (who are very obviously trying to buy-their-way into heaven ;^) ...

    You've gone overboard like most "spiritualists" who think wrongly that all such events on earth are God-driven.

    The fire was started mechanically by some device placed in the roof-top during some routine rebuilding procedure - as will come out soon after investigations are complete.

    God has better things to do than start a fire in the Notre Dame Cathedral to punish the French people for their wayward ways ...

    I am going to be boring and say that maybe we should wait for the report of the ongoing investigation into what caused the fire.

    Regardless of the outcome of the investigation - if it proves to be purely innocent, it will most certainly be dismissed by conspiracy theorists.

    I saw a photo yesterday showing an apparent outline of Christ in the flames..... Delusions of grandeur or what?

    It is true that conspiracy theorists are very reliable in this respect. They always find a conspiracy. Even the absence of a conspiracy is a conspiracy.

    The cross above the altar miraculously survived, though no mention is made of the firefighters who stopped that bit of roof above it collapsing in...

    Nothing like a bit of Divine Intervention in the form of a firefighter!
