The Notre Dame Cathedral fire in Paris



His Holiness spoke concerning the Notre Dame Cathedral fire in Paris, France, saying:

I received the news about the famous Notre Dame Cathedral in the French capital of Paris on Monday, with deep sorrow.

It is a great loss for humanity as a whole, given its historical value, which has made it one of the most important monuments in the world.


We pray that God may give the French leadership wisdom and support to face the consequences of this painful incident, and preserve all the nations of the world in everlasting peace and security.
