I pray that they can save the Cathedral . Everyone needs to send up a pray up to heaven to grant this wish. We had the opportunity to view this elegant Cathedral years ago and I will never forget how massive this structure was in real life.

This was my favorite factoid from the above article:

In fact, even the loss of Notre-Dame’s great attic hasn’t been completely without a silver lining. According to experts, an analysis of the remaining beams suggests that they were grown-to-order in a dedicated forest. And given the age of the wood, this implies that the construction of the cathedral was intended for at least a century prior to building work commencing.
