Years of weather and pollution have taken a toll on Paris’ 855-year-old cathedral, Notre Dame. The nave of the great structure is threatened as the limestone buttress that brace the walls are near collapse. France allots 2 million Euros a year for simple repairs, but it is not nearly enough to pay for the restoration work the building so desperately needs. To make up the shortfall, the archdiocese has formed Friends of Notre Dame to seek upwards of 100 million Euros (roughly $125 million U.S.) with most of the donations expected to come from this country.
With the Muslims set to take over France any time now, BFH has given Notre Dame the restoration that it’s likely to have in the very near future, unless France somehow has an epiphany and saves itself.
Let this image serve as a wake up call.
