Notre Dame will not host Christmas services for first time in 200 years
Dec. 22 (UPI) -- Notre Dame Cathedral will not hold Christmas services for the first time in more than two centuries as it continues to undergo repairs from a fire in April.
A midnight Mass will be held on Christmas Eve at the nearby church of Sait-Germain l'Auxerois but it will not hold Christmas service at the 85-year-old cathedral for the first time since 1803, officials said.
Notre Dame has hosted Christmas Mass for 200 years through various turbulent historical events, only closing during the French revolution when it was converted into a "temple of reason" by anti-Catholic forces.
In April, a devastating fire collapsed the roof of the cathedral and the 750-ton spire, a 19th-century reproduction of the original Gothic structure, collapsed through the top of the building.
The French culture ministry said in October that about $1 billion had been raised to restore the cathedral. Source
“The great chastisement will come, because men will not be converted; yet it is only their conversion that can hinder these scourges. God will begin to strike men by inflicting lighter punishments in order to open their eyes; then He will stop, or may repeat His former warnings to give place for repentance. But sinners will not avail themselves of these opportunities; He will, in consequence, send more severe castigations, anxious to move sinners to repentance, but all in vain. Finally, the obduracy of sinners shall draw upon their heads the greatest and most terrible calamities. Mélanie
“We are all guilty! Penance is not done, and sin increases daily. Those who should come forward to do good are retained by fear. Evil is great. A moderate punishment serves only to irritate the spirits, because they view all things with human eyes. God could work a miracle to convert and change the aspect of the earth without chastisement. God will work a miracle; it will be a stroke of His mercy; but after the wicked shall have inebriated themselves with blood, the scourge shall arrive Mélanie
“What countries shall be preserved from such calamities? Where shall we go for refuge? I, in my turn, shall ask, What is the country that observes the commandments of God? What country is not influenced by human fear where the interest of the Church and the glory of God are at stake? (Ah, indeed! What country, what nation upon earth?) In behalf of my Superior and myself, I have often asked myself where we could go for refuge, had we the means for the journey and for our subsistence, on condition that no person were to know it? But I renounce these useless thoughts. We are very guilty! In consequence of this, it is necessary that a very great and terrible scourge should come to revive our faith, and to restore to us our very reason, which we have almost entirely lost. Mélanie
