The monks of the Serbian Orthodox Church Monastery of Visoki Decani expressed their deep solidarity with all Christians and citizens of France regarding the fire that ravaged Notre Dame on Monday. „May God grant the speedy reconstruction of this beautiful church so that it may rise again in all its splendor,“ they said.
A fire broke out in the famous Notre Dame cathedral in Paris on Monday afternoon. It spread quickly and the spire of the cathedral completely burned and collapsed, after which the entire roof also collapsed. The fire lasted several hours, and the structure was preserved. Firefighters also succeeded in preventing the destruction of one of the main bell towers, while most religious relics and priceless works of art were saved.
