Former President Barack Obama shared a personal family picture at the Cathedral. He posted, “It’s in our nature to mourn when we see history lost – but it’s also in our nature to rebuild for tomorrow, as strong as we can.”

Notre Dame is one of the world’s great treasures, and we’re thinking of the people of France in your time of grief. It’s in our nature to mourn when we see history lost – but it’s also in our nature to rebuild for tomorrow, as strong as we can.

Singer Camila Cabello also recalled her visit to the site. “...I’ll never forget walking in the first time in Paris and being in awe of the beauty of it.”

And Glenn Close went on to say, “Until this moment, I didn’t realize how much it has meant to me, knowing it was there, seemingly indestructible...” and, “...May Notre Dame find healing, over the coming years. May we all experience that healing together. “
