After the tragic fire that destroyed much of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, the French President, Mr. Emmanuel Macron, announced plans to rebuild it in a more modern style, and asked some international architects to submit designs.

One of the architects, Olivier Leclercq, suggested reinterpreting the slender spire of Viollet le Duc with "a hole with a kind of arrow inverted from below." According to Professor Babeau, president of the Sapiens Institute, "others propose replacing the boring roof, providentially gone up in smoke, with a magnificent greenhouse that would be a transparent secular space."

Denis Valode and Jean Pistre, founders of the top French architectural firm, said: "it's vital to avoid a competition among international architects who don't know the subject and who will try to use it to show unwelcome architectural creativity on the cathedral."

Victor Hugo warned: There are fashions that have done more harm than revolutions!

Notre Dame Cathedral is sacred. Its harmony must be preserved. The only solution worthy of this gem of Christian Civilization is to restore it to its original beauty.

Please make your voice heard by signing the petition to the French President and the Minister of Culture.
