The Cross Remains Untouched Among The Notre-Dame Blaze

After nearly losing one of the world’s most well-known and oldest structures to fire, French fire fighters who battled the Notre Dame cathedral fire for over 12 hours, were finally able to subdue the blaze. In addition to the many ways in which God acted to protect various items in the building, one of the most remarkable stories to come from the aftermath of the fire was the photographs showing the altar area of the cathedral, standing almost untouched by the flames.
Who Took The Miraculous Photo?
Photographer Phillippe Wojazer took photos after the fire, showing the devastation the cathedral endured for an accidental fire. However, standing in the background, with an almost fiery golden hue is a large cross, situated right above the cathedral’s alter. Although there are burned piles of rubbish all around it, and smoke still visibly smolders from the ashes, the alter and the cross above it remain unharmed. The photographs of this apparent miracle prove remarkable.
What The Bible Says About God’s Protection
According to 2 Thessalonians 3:3, “But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one,” God cares about us and protects us from evil. It seems He is also committed to protecting the structures within which He is honored and praised, such as the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Though there is a great deal of damage to repair, the foundation of the structure, along with many of its iconic characteristics are still standing, along with its remarkable alter. Praise God for His provisions and protection. Prayers for the people of Paris as they restore the beautiful cathedral to its former glory.
