Grieving the fire of Notre Dame during Holy Week

Notre Dame Cathedral 3 weeks before the fire.

As you may know during the Easter Triduum we read the four gospel accounts of the passion of our Lord at table, preempting whatever table reading has been in progress.  As luck would have it today at lunch just before the end of the meal we concluded the pope’s post-synodal apostolic exhortation to young people, Christus vivit.  With but a few minutes left in the meal, and not yet ready to start the passion accounts, the prior had the inspired idea to read something related to current events.  So we read Zac Davis’s “Grieving the fire of Notre Dame during Holy Week,” from America Magazine.  As we finished the article, the abbot rang the bell indicating the end of lunch.  We are now ready for the reading of the passion accounts.
