Notre Dame Priest Hailed as Hero After Bravely Securing Relics

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

Published

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.

WATCH: Omar Openly Mocks Conservative Christians From Floor of House of Representatives

Different day, same radical.

Different day, same Ilhan Omar. The Minnesota Democrat can’t seem to stop putting her foot in her mouth, seemingly in an attempt to keep up with fellow freshman lawmakers Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY). Check out her speech from the House floor where she attacks conservative Christians for being pro-life… From Daily Wire: Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) attacked conservative people on the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday over their advocacy for pro-life stances on abortion. Ilhan said, “I rise today to defy the horrifying attacks happening against women’s reproductive rights all across this country. Religious fundamentalists are currently trying to manipulate state laws in order to impose their beliefs on an entire society, all with complete disregard for voices and the rights of American women.” She added, “I am frustrated every single time I hear people speaking about their faith and pushing that on to other people because we know those so-called religious politicians, when it comes to their life, their choices, they want to talk about freedom. But when it comes to other people’s lives and other people’s choices, they want to talk about religion. This should outrage every single person. It certainly outrages me and we can no longer stand for it.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1131354195175460864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131354195175460864&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47573%2Fwatch-ilhan-omar-attacks-conservative-people-faith-ryan-saavedra Congressional Dems are taking a stand against Ilhan. From From Beacon: The reelection campaign for Rep. Lucy McBath (D., Ga.) said Wednesday it rejected a $2,000 contribution sent to it by her fellow Democratic freshman congresswoman Ilhan Omar (Minn.), who has been criticized by colleagues on both sides of the aisle for anti-Semitism. The Free Beacon first reported the $2,000 contribution given by Omar to McBath, whose campaign oddly left the contribution off its quarterly fundraising report. Pressed on the reason for its absence on Tuesday, the McBath campaign…

And that could be an impeachable offense,’ she said at the CAPS Ideas conference in Washington D.C. The speaker warned Trump that ignoring congressional subpoenas – which he has been ordering former administration officials to do – was part of the articles of impeachment against former President Richard Nixon.
