To the front of the edifice of Notre Dame de Paris

ECCLESIA ET SYNAGOGA, the name given to the symbolic representations in Christian art of the Middle Ages of the victorious Church and defeated Synagogue, symbolizing the triumph of Christianity. The representation is often found in medieval Christian manuscript art. It also became a conventional decoration in many medieval churches, especially in France, England, and Germany, and took the form of two graceful female figures, usually on the outside of the building. The Church is shown erect and triumphant, bearing a cross; the Synagogue is usually blindfolded and dejected, bearing a broken staff and sometimes decorated with the Tables of the Ten Commandments symbolizing the Old Testament. (usually depicted falling from the hands of the Jewish)

What Is the Message of the Fire at Notre Dame Cathedral? – On TFP.org

Now, the rational, esthetic and cohesive exterior structures that defined the French people have come crashing down. Secular, neo-pagan and multi-cultural France has abandoned God. Have now God and the Virgin abandoned France? The nation stands so shattered and despoiled of her unity that a major author recently released a bestselling book titled The French Archipelago.

It Is Written: Islamic Faith in Ultimate Victory – On Fatima Center

The “defeat” of the Islamic State (ISIS) has occasioned some self-congratulation in the West. The so-called caliphate no longer controls any significant territory and has been reduced to a rag-tag band of fighters without a place to plant their flag.  If ISIS were merely a military or political entity, there might be some justification for thinking it has been vanquished.  But ISIS is Islam. And Islam has not been vanquished.

Saint Osmund, founder of the Cathedral system of Church governance – On Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites   



I put my trust in thee O Heavenly Father , and offer up to Thee , the united hearts of Jesus and Mary the victorious, bleeding wounds of Jesus, and the tears of our Beloved Heavenly Mother – Lord May thy will be done.

From the Introit of today’s traditional Mass of Holy Tuesday

Judge Thou, them that wrong us , overthrow them that fight against us  , of arms and shield , and rise up to help us, O Lord the strength of my salvation, Bring out the sword and shut the way against them that persecute us , say to my soul I am thy salvation – Judge Thou , O Lord .

From the Mid-day Novus 0rdo Divine Office Of The Liturgy Of The Hours today which also has some fitting prayers for the day’s tragedy

God, come to my assistance. — Lord, make haste to help me.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: — as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.


Jesus, only begotten Son and Lamb of God the Father Thou didst give Thy body and blood to buy me from the grave

My Christ, my Christ, my shield, my encircler, Each day and night, each dark and light. My Christ, my Christ, my shield, my encircler, Each day and night, my Christ.

Jesus, Son of Mary, be near me and uphold me in my standing, in my lying and in my sleeping.

My Christ, my Christ, my shield, my encircler, Each day and night, each dark and light. My Christ, my Christ, my shield, my encircler, Each day and night, my Christ.

My helper, my encircler, My strength everlasting. My Christ, my Christ, my shield, my encircler, Each day and night, my Christ.

Ant. I know my own sheep, and my own know me, as the Father knows me and as I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep.

Psalm 119:49-56 Remember your word to your servant by which you gave me hope. This is my comfort in sorrow
that your promise gives me life. Though the proud may utterly deride me I keep to your law. I remember your decrees of old and these, Lord, console me. I am seized with indignation at the wicked who forsake your law. Your commands have become my song
in the land of exile. I think of your name in the night-time and I keep your law. This has been my blessing, the keeping of your precepts.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
— as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Psalm 53 The foolishness of sinners  The fool has said in his heart: “There is no God above.” Their deeds are corrupt, depraved; not a good man is left. God looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if any are wise, if any seek God. All have left the right path, depraved, every one. There is not a good man left, no, not even one. Will the evil-doers not understand? They eat up my people as though they were eating bread: they never pray to God. See how they tremble with fear without cause for fear: for God scatters the bones of the wicked. They are shamed; God rejects them. O that Israel’s salvation might come from Zion! When God delivers his people from bondage, then Jacob will be glad and Israel rejoice.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: — as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Psalm 54:1-6, 8-9

O God, save me by your name; by your power, uphold my cause. O God, hear my prayer; listen to the words of my mouth.For proud men have risen against me, ruthless men seek my life. They have no regard for God. But I have God for my help. The Lord upholds my life.I will sacrifice to you with willing heart and praise your name for it is good: for you have rescued me from all my distress and my eyes have seen the downfall of my foes.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
— as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Ant. I know my own sheep, and my own know me, as the Father knows me and as I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep.

READING 1 Corinthians 1:22-24

Jews demand “signs” and Greeks look for “wisdom,” but we preach Christ crucified – a stumbling block to Jews, and an absurdity to Gentiles, but to those who are called, Jews and Greeks alike, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.


Almighty ever-living God, grant us so to celebrate the mysteries of the Lord’s Passion that we may merit to receive your pardon. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.— Amen.
