He wrote, “I have been to Notre Dame multiple times and over the years have even experienced attending Mass with Cathedral students.  The Cathedral is beautiful and is full of history, culture and beautiful pieces of art work.  I have been watching the news updates and was overwhelmed with emotion as I watched the beautiful spire fall to the ground as it burned.”
