“The Holy See has received with shock and sorrow the news of the terrible conflagration that has devastated the Cathedral of Notre Dame, symbol of Christianity in France and in the world. We express our closeness to French Catholics and to the population of Paris, and assure our prayers for the firefighters and those who are doing everything possible to face this dramatic situation.”
