As Notre Dame Collapses In Flames, Heartbroken Mourners Kneel, Sing 'Ave Maria' In The Streets

The world mourns the loss of the 850-year-old cathedral, but perhaps none so much as the people of Paris, who, as night fell, gathered in the streets to pay homage to Notre Dame.

Crowds gathered in the streets of Paris tonight, to watch in heartbreak and disbelief as their city's historic, beloved cathedral roared with flame and collapsed.

The mourning crowds knelt in prayer, held hands and raised their voices in song. 

Notre Dame was built before Cortez landed on the shores of the New World, it survived wars and revolutions, has been host to millions; now the great Catholic cathedral lies in ruins, it's tall spire ashes.

French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted:

The fire is currently considered accidental. Ironically, it may be the result of repairs and renovations.  Police are investigating.

Our hearts go out to the people of Paris and Catholics around the world who are mourning the loss.
