As crowds in Paris helplessly watched the Notre-Dame Cathedral engulfed in flames on Monday night, they joined together in song.
While a beloved piece of the world’s history burned before their eyes, a group of onlookers gathered together to pray the Rosary and sing powerful hymns.
Ignacio Gil, a French correspondent for the Spanish paper El Mundo, captured stunning footage of a group singing “Ave Maria” while gazing at the burning cathedral in the distance.
Quelle dignité face à la #douleur, quelle force face à la tragédie ! Cet Ave Maria chanté devant #NotreDame est autant un cri du coeur, qu'un cri d'espoir.— Kevin Bossuet (@kevinbossuet) April 15, 2019
