Today's blog is unusual, in that I am not going to comment much on the article, other than to say that, being a traditionalist, I shudder to think what sort of post-Vatican II nonsense might be in the offing for the restoration of Paris' famous Notre Dame Cathedral. But I'll leave that to the reader to make up his own mind. I'll save my commentary for after the article. My thanks to all of you who shared versions of this story:

What I found interesting is the collapse of the central spire onto the ugly Vatican II slab that functioned as an altar in the Cathedral, while much of the medieval trappings and artwork in the Cathedral was left intact. If indeed Someone was trying to tell the Archdiocese of Paris something, it appears that the message was not received...:

If the roof and, sadly, the very structure of Notre Dame have suffered much by the awful fire of April 15, 2019, the medieval treasures that adorn its interior were mostly, and perhaps even miraculously saved, from the superb stained-glass windows dating back to the Middle Ages to the high altar, and even the 14th-century statue of the Virgin and Child was intact, although it was situated close the modern altar in the middle of the transept. That unsightly work of art was destroyed when the spire came down, causing the stones of the ceiling to fall on it. But the monumental organ, the side-chapels and the delicate high-reliefs bordering the chancel were all intact.

After the tomfoolery and high jinks of the Second Vatican Council and its liturgical "renewal" I for one shudder to think what might be in the offing.  If the article is correct, it will be something like a slide-show.  And it's almost guaranteed to be modern, and therefore ugly.

At least it's not being turned into a greenhouse... but that leaves the question, what is the iconic cathedral being turned into? When the fire happened, I was deeply saddened, and one can only imagine what Parisians felt; the cathedral was at the literal center of the Ile de France. At the time, however, the symbolism of the fire was what most disturbed me. I wondered then, and still do, if it was not a deliberate and diabolic attempt to literally burn out the last vestiges of a traditional symbol at the heart of France. If so, as I noted above with the quotation from the article, the only thing blotted out by the fire was the Vatican II slab. But the priest in charge of it's "restoration" appears not to have noticed, and indeed is a champion of the liturgical mess of the Novus Ordo Missae of Paul VI, citing its "petrine authority." What he neglects to mention is the heavy hand of confirmed Freemason, Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, who oversaw the creation of the Novus Ordo. 

Whither Notre Dame?

I shudder to think...

    “I wondered then, and still do, if it was not a deliberate and diabolic attempt to literally burn out the last vestiges of a traditional symbol at the heart of France.” Exactly the same thought here!

    I’d say, if it was deliberate, it was at root an attack on the concept of the nation-state, targeting the affective underpinnings of the latter. The purpose would have been to demoralize, traumatize, and get across the message “This land doesn’t belong to the French anymore, and it doesn’t belong to Christians. Kiss all that good-bye!” Fits perfectly with Monsieur “There Is No Such Thing as French Culture” Macron, future head of the European Commission.

    Like many Churches and Temples Notre Dame was built on top of prior churches.
    “It is believed that before the arrival of Christianity in France, a Gallo-Roman temple dedicated to Jupiter stood on the site of Notre-Dame.”

    Reconstruction after the fire would be a great opportunity to dig for artifacts and information. No doubt there’s esoteric knowledge/rituals/geometry and certain energy alignments associated with this area.

    Ever since the French( anti-Catholic) Revolution, Catholic Church in France is not an the owner of the its properties . They were nationalized and RC dioceses have to pay a rent for usage of the churches. Unless there is a true Catholic contra-revolution in France things will only decay slowly evermore.

    Notre Dame is Mary Magdalene’s cathedral.
    The attack on the cathedral was an attack on women and the feminine “Yin” energy.

    The Knights Templar have some interesting things to say about Mary Magdalene —>

    You read long enough, you’ll read about chakras and energy work.

    May I recommend a new YouTube channel Maiorianus it’s about the fall of the Roman Empire I think viewers of this website will see the parallels to the wokeness that is infesting the World today.

    Perhaps the Chinese could be the majority holder of the Mickey Mouse
    bonds that they can float around the globe[it’s a small world after all]. “They” could build an One-World-Fits-All extravaganza; including all the appropriate symbolism, including a smorgasbord of international secret societies.
    Wouldn’t want just the Freemasons getting all those sacred goodies.

    The more the merrier.
    Viva la difference!

      Both dead links 🙁

      • Robert Barricklow on December 3, 2021 at 9:22 pm

        Tried to copy in a hurry; both fell through.
        Will try to correct – when have time later tonight.
        [But, it maybe; I copied right and it wouldn’t take.]

        • Robert Barricklow on December 3, 2021 at 9:23 pm

          See what I mean?

      • Robert Barricklow on December 4, 2021 at 1:06 am

        I made a simple mistake like I did w/you.
        I misspelled victor[e]

        And in the first on I missed the last letter “l”

        Now, I won’t be surprised if I screwed it up again.

        • Robert Barricklow on December 4, 2021 at 1:12 am

          Got the first one right.
          The second one gives you multiple choice.
          Select the first choice. It’s obvious, I know.
          But that’s AI for you.

          Great novel, The Hunch Back of Notre Dame.

    If they make enough of a donation, I bet Notre Dame’s soaring arches could become the golden arches of McDonalds. Or perhaps some other BigCorp could give a naming gift. Much like we have Staples Stadium and M&T Bank Stadium, we could have McDonalds Cathedral or AT&T Cathedral. Surely the Vatican still has some vaults that need filling with gold.
