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

The first and second richest men in France are still slugging it out through cultural capital

The head of Egypt's Copts, Pope Tawadroz II, said in a statement that the fire was a "huge loss for entire humanity" and affected "one of the most important monuments in the world".

Housed in the two western towers, Notre Dame's bells have rung out at key moments in France's history.

Many critics have argued that the cathedral itself is the real hero of the work, which the writer and campaigner began in 1829 partly to draw attention to the importance of the French capital's gothic architecture, which at the time was being widely neglected, defaced or pulled down to make way for new buildings.

Vatican spokesman Alessandro Gisotti said on Twitter on Tuesday that the pope "is close to France" and that he is offering prayers "for all those who are trying to cope with this dramatic situation".

Moreover, while the world-famous building sustained extensive damage in the fire, with both its roof and spire destroyed, all precious artefacts and artworks were salvaged from the cathedral. He called Notre Dame a "priceless treasure of Christian and world culture" and said Russian Federation is ready to send the "best specialists" to help rebuild it.

Culture and Heritage Minister Nathalie Roy said she was saddened about the incident and that Quebecers are affected by what has happened to their French cousins.

Lesley, 38, said she hoped the image would "bring comfort" to those who were distressed by the fire at the historic building.

The Paris fire service said that the last remnants of the blaze were extinguished Tuesday, 15 hours after the fire broke out.

Parliament President Antonio Tajani invited European Union lawmakers, meeting in Strasbourg, France, to contribute their day's salary to help finance reconstruction.

"We assume they have not been damaged by the fire but there will eventually be damage from the smoke", Riester said.

Gabriel Plus said Tuesday morning that emergency services are now "surveying the movement of the structures and extinguishing smoldering residues".

French businessmen have also pledged hundreds of millions of euros for reconstruction, including Bernard Arnault, France's richest businessman, and Francois-Henri Pinault and his billionaire father Francois Pinault.

Statues removed just days ago for restoration work were also spared. It was hit when the spire collapsed, said Laurent Prades, heritage director for Notre Dame.

"We have everything to be able to rebuild it in exactly the same way", Riester told France Inter, adding that the government was looking at ways to encourage donations.

The cathedrals famous 18th-century organ that boasts more than 8,000 pipes also survived.

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.
