Notre Dame Priest Hailed as Hero After Bravely Securing Relics

This wasn’t Fournier’s first brush with Parisian tragedy either.

Notre Dame

The horror that we watched unfold yesterday afternoon was enough to make American stomachs turn from thousands of miles away.

The grandiose cathedral at Notre Dame in Paris was ablaze, scorching the 800+ years of history of the sacred place of worship.  Worse still, the construction of the cathedral, as well as it’s location on a busy island in the middle of one of the world’s most populated areas, didn’t allow for firefighters to work within their full capacity.

And while many are mourning the loss of this incredible architecture, the faithful had other reasons to be concerned, as Notre Dame was the home of a great many important religious artifacts, including pieces of Jesus Christ’s crown of thorns and portions of the cross on which he was crucified.

One priest is being hailed as a hero today after safely relocating these antiquities during the blaze.

Jean-Marc Fournier, chaplain of the Paris Fire Brigade, rushed straight for the relics housed in the cathedral to rescue the the Blessed Sacrament and the Crown of Thorns relics from the blazing building on Monday night.

It was feared that both religious artefacts would be lost as flames engulfed the medieval building, but Father Fournier made sure they were taken to safety.

This was Fournier’s first taste of tragedy, however.

Four years ago he also comforted the wounded after the worst terrorist attack on Paris this century when 89 people were massacred at the Eagles of Death Metal concert in 2015.

There has been no indication of foul play in the inferno, although it appears that Islamic extremists have begun to celebrate the fire as a blow to Christianity.

Jobless Claims Fall Below A Million, Breaking 20-Week Streak

Published

on

We have more excellent news on the economic front as the number of new applications received for unemployment benefits has dropped to 963,000, according to reports published by the Labor Department. This breaks the streak of 20 consecutive weeks that saw those figures above a million. Economists had projected this week’s numbers would be somewhere around 1.1 million. This is fantastic. Our nation is finally starting to recover a bit from the coronavirus, though you’d never guess that was the case by the way the mainstream media is covering the story. Here’s more information from The Washington Examiner: The total number of people claiming jobless benefits in all programs for the week ending July 25 was 28.3 million, a decrease of over 3 million from the previous week. For comparison, there were 1.7 million people claiming benefits for all programs in the same week in 2019. While jobless claims remain at historic highs, Mark Hamrick, a senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com, noted that they have fallen in places particularly affected by the coronavirus. Florida saw a drop of over 23,000 in initial claims between the week ending Aug. 8 and the week prior. Georgia and Texas saw decreases of over 11,000 each over the same time period. Back in March, toward the end of the month, jobless numbers hit a staggering 6.9 million. Those numbers began to drop in May with the reopening of the economy in many states around the country, but hadn’t dropped below a million until now. The recovery has been a bit slow paced, but that’s to be expected. Most places around the nation have been very cautious about reopening after the shutdowns earlier this year. It only makes sense that as things happen in phases, slowly over time, so too would the economic recovery. Here’s…

#SayHisName Trends On Social Media After Lack Of Media Coverage On Murder Of 5-Year-Old Cannon Hinnant

Published

on

As of this writing, the vast majority of mainstream media news outlets have yet to run any kind of coverage on the brutal Sunday evening murder of a five-year-old North Carolina boy named Cannon Hinnant. Hinnant was killed by 25-year-old Darius Sessoms, which has led to hashtag #SayHisName to trend on social media Thursday morning. Sessoms is a black man and lived next door to the victim’s father. Sessoms walked up to the boy, who is white, and shot him in the head at point-blank range, right in front of his two sisters, one seven, the other eight. It’s sick and disgusting to see the mainstream media ignore this story, simply because the shooter is black and it doesn’t fit the racially charged narrative they are pushing at the moment. Murder is murder. Evil is evil. It doesn’t matter what size, shape, or color it comes in. Here are more details from The Daily Wire: CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, and MSNBC, as of Thursday morning, have yet to cover the attack. Fox News has covered the tragic news. Some have argued that the lack of coverage is because of the races of the victim and the alleged murderer. On Tuesday, author and Daily Wire podcast host Matt Walsh brought attention to the murder via Twitter, using the now-viral phrase, “say his name.” “Say his name. 5 year old Cannon Hinnant was executed in cold blood while riding his bike,” posted Walsh. “The accused killer is Darius Sessoms. He allegedly walked up to the boy and shot him dead in front of his sisters.” “Reverse the races and this is the only thing anyone talks about for a month,” Walsh said. https://twitter.com/MattWalshBlog/status/1293208169339133953 People have grown frustrated about the lack of coverage, which is why the hashtag has taken off like it…
