In this episode we discuss the fire at the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris and how this event is not only the loss of a magnificent artistic and cultural achievement but is oddly symbolic: the destruction of a church from within… from the top. Over a billion dollars have been pledged to rebuild the cathedral, but in a new way, with new materials, representing the “New France” — and the “new Church.” A melancholy episode during the week when we meditate on the passion of Christ and His Church.
