Local Catholic community reacts to Notre Dame Cathedral fire

Than a church, more than of course... many catholics and lovers of history right here in our area were devastated by the scenes in paris.

Kezi 9 news reporter jessica babb spoke with worshipers today who told us that watching the flames was unreal.

Jessica?

Madison -- some people i spoke with say the timing couldn't be worse.

This week - the week before easter - is holy week..and if the circumstances were different, the cathedral would be getting ready to display its holy relics on good friday.

I spoke with father bryce mcproud from st.

Mary's catholic church and he says notre dame is a symbol of faithfulness in the catholic church.

Notre dame actually means "our lady" - representing the virgin mary - which is central to the faith.

I spoke with a woman who goes to st.

Alice catholic church in springfield who has visited the cathedral, she says its devastating to see it on fire.

"very sad, i could cry.

I can't imagine it being gone.

We've been there a couple different times, i can't imagine that it's gone."

She says seeing the cathedral in person is breathtaking -- and says it's a sense of history you can feel, but can't explain.

Mcproud says that while this is tragic - he hopes it will bring people together in the end as the rebulding process begins.
