Mum Claims She Can See Jesus In Notre-Dame Cathedral Flames

Fournier, who is in his 50s and now serves as the chaplain for the Paris Fire Brigade, is no stranger to disasters - he tended to the injured and prayed over the 89 people killed in the 2015 Bataclan attack.

Archbishop Christian Lépine organized the mass at the city's Notre-Dame Basilica, which is inspired by the historic church in France.

News that the fire was probably accidental has done nothing to ease the national mourning.

Almost $1 billion has already poured in from ordinary worshippers and high-powered magnates around the world to restore the fire-ravaged Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, after the French president set a controversial five-year deadline to get the work done. It was hit when the spire collapsed, said Laurent Prades, heritage director for Notre Dame.

The tragedy prompted an outpouring of support internationally, with the Queen saying she was "deeply saddened" and Pope Francis offering his prayers.

Sister Madeleine, a Dominican nun from Paris, was visibly upset when she arrived to inspect Notre Dame, a day after the blaze.

The jerseys will then be auctioned off with profits given to the rebuilding efforts of the 850-year-old Parisian monument after its spire and roof collapsed on Monday in a spectacular blaze. The L'Oreal cosmetics group and its founding Bettencourt family offered 200 million euros, while French oil giant Total said it would contribute 100 million euros.

The court appointed senior advocate Arvind Datar as an independent counsel in the case to examine the implications of the app. The ban order came after the court noted that children were being exposed to pornographic and inappropriate material.

The 12th-century church is home to the organ, relics, stained glass and other works of art of incalculable value, and is a leading tourist attraction. But no one can tell whether it has been damaged by water or will need to be restored.

"But there will be interesting conversations about the extent of new fireproof construction to be used in any restoration, for example for the main roof structure, to make any recurrence impossible", he said, adding that building codes will ensure fires can't spread easily in the rebuilt cathedral.

Bertrand de Feydeau is the vice president of preservation group Fondation du Patrimoine. The St. Boniface Cathedral fire was sparked in the attic by one of the workers repairing the roof. Macron is holding a special Cabinet meeting Wednesday dedicated to the Notre Dame disaster, which investigators believe was an accident possibly linked to renovation work.

She said: "I feel like it will bring comfort to people in Paris and all over the world at this sad time".

The cost of a likely multi-year restoration project could itself take a year to become clear, industry experts said.

'We have been able to salvage all the rest, ' said Mr Prades, who witnessed the recovery first hand overnight. A 100m crane lowered the copper statues representing the 12 apostles and four evangelists onto a lorry.
