Two years ago, my wife and I were in Notre Dame Cathedral on Good Friday. We were exploring the somber chapels deep in the cathedral when a commotion stirred nearby, and a line of young men in robes emerged from a dark hallway. We joined a small crowd that followed the celebrants to the front doors of the cathedral and out onto the bright plaza where they established the stations of the cross. We will remember that colorful spring afternoon all our lives.
How wonderful that Notre Dame was largely saved and will be re-built! Here is a dotphoto slideshow that recalls Notre Dame that day.
