"While it was sad to see such a historic landmark on fire, I could not help but reflect on what the Notre Dame Cathedral actually represents. For over 800 years it has been a place where Roman Catholic priests have committed the most serious sin of idolatry by lifting up a wafer and worshipping it as the physical body and blood of Jesus Christ. Notre Dame also represents the center of Roman Catholicism in France, whose members slaughtered approximately 100,000 Bible believing Christians on St. Bartholomew’s Day in 1572. The reason for the massacre of so many Protestant Hugenots was utterly appalling! It was because the Roman Catholic religion feared it was losing control over the souls of men who were being set free by the Word of God (John 8:31-32)."
"It was also at Notre Dame that Pope Pius X beatified Joan of Arc, France’s most famous Catholic martyr, after a previous 'infallible' pope condemned her as a heretic. The Cathedral also hosted fake relics said to be the crown of thorns worn by Christ and a piece of wood that was part of His cross. How tragic it is to see Catholics venerate fake relics of Christ while paying little attention to His infallible, inspired, authoritative Word that brings forth life to those who believe it."

The inferno that raged through Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France for more than 12 hours destroyed its spire and its roof, but spared its organ, three large stained-glass rose windows, and the twin medieval bell towers, reports the Associated Press.
Bernard Arnault, France’s richest businessman who owns Louis Vitton pledged $226 million for reconstruction. Plus, three companies -- Total, L’Oreal, and Gucci -- are each pledging $113 million.
Catholics were overjoyed that Notre Dame’s supposedly sacred relic, the Crown of Thorns which was purported to have been pressed onto Christ’s head during the crucifixion, was quickly transported after the fire broke out.
To be clear, as GotQuestions.org notes, “there is absolutely no power in Christian relics. Even if the entire cross of Jesus were discovered intact, it would have no spiritual value. Relics do not, in any manner whatsoever, enable us to get closer to God.” [see: How should a Christian view relics? - GotQuestions]
The French people need to meditate on John 14:6 in which Jesus declares “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me.”
After the fire destruction of Notre Dame (Our Lady), Roman Catholics have been holding prayer vigils: praying the Rosary and making prayers to Mary (which is basically one and the same), but is this biblical (or pagan) and does God even hear these prayers? Please see the following links:
