The Anglo-Italian Imperial Patriarch comments on the fire at Notre Dame de Paris

Notre Dame de Paris. I remember the venerable old cathedral well, climbing up the narrow stairs, the gargoyles, all the little details that are easy to miss. It is a fond memory of the Europe I knew and loved in my youth, a society and culture that most Europeans have ceded away and destroyed. Some of us still proudly call ourselves European, invoking the memory of Caesar, of Charles the Hammer, of Charlemagne, St. Louis IX, Friedrich the Great, and many others, with determination that our Faith and our culture will never be allowed to die, but will flourish once again. The great cathedral may burn, but its image is forever seared into my memory. We in the Anglo-Italian Imperial Patriarchate, then, dedicate the liturgy of Holy Week to the renaissance of European Christianity. Deus vult!
