Notre Dame

The Notre Dame fire yesterday was/is depressing: the sheer destruction; the demise of the transcendent; the degradation of beauty.
The responses have been noteworthy: from generous private offers to fund the rebuilding to supreme angst in a thoroughly-post-Christian country (which indicates the prevalence of a French Civil Religion with some of the trappings of Christianity).
Praying today for France and for spiritual repentance, renewal, and revival (even if temporary, as with 9/11).
