    A Muslim convert who is believed to be the UK’s first female suicide bomb plotter has been jailed for planning to “blow St Paul’s Cathedral to the ground” and “kill as many people as possible”. Safiyya Amira Shaikh, 37, who professed support for Islamic State, was sentenced at the Old Bailey on Friday to life imprisonment with a minimum incarceration term of 14 years. Born Michelle Ramsden, the single mother from Hayes was seen leaving court in a black hijab, smiling at the press while raising her finger in a salute associated with the Islamic State terror group, according to...

    The University of Notre Dame was in a strong financial position before the coronavirus pandemic. Now, it faces “significant budget challenges” and is currently projecting a $100 million loss in revenue for the upcoming fiscal year, according to a letter issued to the school community. With an operating budget at $1.7 billion, officials were already expecting a revenue loss of $44 million for the current fiscal year, which ends on June 30. Much of that has been attributed to the university returning $22 million to students in spring undergraduate room and board fees, as well as the loss of auxiliary...

    Unidentified arsonists placed a large trash bin against a side door of the Saint-Pierre cathedral in Rennes late last week and set the contents on fire, in an apparent attempt to torch the church. Rennes firefighters arrived in time to put out the fire, which they believe to have been intentionally set since the bin was brought from an adjacent street and deliberately placed outside the door. The incident took place during the night from the 11th to 12th of June. It was the owner of a neighborhood restaurant who sounded the alarm, shortly before 2:00am. “I started to smell...

    Notre Dame football will not open the season against Navy in Dublin, Ireland, on Aug. 29, because of the coronavirus pandemic, but they will face each other at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland, most likely on Labor Day weekend, Notre Dame announced Tuesday morning. The decision to move the game to Navy for the first time in the 94-year history of the series was made after "extensive consultation" with the Irish government, medical authorities and the administrative staffs at both schools, according to the release. The 94th consecutive game of the longest continuous intersectional rivalry in the country...

    We are studying the Civil War as a family these days, and unlike many other historical events, there is no shortage of good films dealing with the this topic, among them: Glory, Gods and Generals, and Gettysburg. We watched Gettysburg last night. I hadn’t seen it since it was originally released in 1993 when I saw it on the big screen. Since that time, I have visited the battlefield at least twice. The last time was in 2016 with my oldest daughter on our way back from a homeschool conference in Maryland. It was during that visit that we came...

    Social restrictions and lockdown measures in France due to the coronavirus have pushed reconstruction for Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral even further, despite already running months behind schedule. The prized Parisian church became engulfed in flames on April 15, 2019, resulting in the collapse of its iconic spire and significant damage to one of its landmark towers. It has been suspected that an electrical short circuit or a cigarette butt caused the fire that began in the attic of the structure. “The restoration phase will no doubt begin during 2021,” said Monsignor Patrick Chauvet... Work on the building had been slated...

    ‘Everything at this school is extremely white’ ‘Under the auspices of religion, they do harm. They do great harm’ A forum Wednesday at the University of Notre Dame featured panelists who urged the university to pay reparations to blacks and Native Americans. Panelist Savanna Morgan, a senior at Notre Dame, said black and indigenous communities have a “right” to pursue reparations at Notre Dame. These reparations are “indeed monetary,” she said, adding they are “equally psychological and symbolic.” Morgan said one of the “appropriate remedies” for Notre Dame is “taking our $13.8 billion endowment out of this one mile radius...

    President Donald Trump has expressed his faith in the reconstruction effort now underway in Paris to revive the Notre Dame cathedral, stating its completion would give “glory to God” and fill millions of people “with wonder and awe”. The comments came during President Trump’s keynote speech at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland Tuesday. Following wide-ranging remarks on the strengths of the U.S. economy under his leadership, rising employment, and spreading global trade, the President moved to how the world should work to strengthen civilisation itself. Referring to Notre Dame in Paris, which lost much of its...

    The French general overseeing the reconstruction of fire-devastated Notre Dame Cathedral says the Paris landmark is not saved yet because there’s still a risk its vaulted ceilings might collapse. Gen. Jean-Louis Georgelin told French broadcaster CNews on Sunday that “the cathedral is still in a state of peril” after last year’s fire, which destroyed its roof and toppled its 300-foot, 750-ton spire as the cathedral was undergoing renovations. “Notre Dame is not saved because ... there is an extremely important step ahead, which is to remove the scaffolding that had been built around the spire” before the fire, he said....

    ArtNet News ^ | Jan 2020
    The restoration of the Paris cathedral has reached a critical stage, in which steel beams need to be installed to stabilize the structure and a tower of scaffolding fused in the fire in April has to be removed. The scaffolding, which was erected before the blaze, must be treated for lead contamination before specialists—suspended aloft by ropes—can cut it away. Once this perilous step is complete, they will construct a temporary roof, called the “grand parapluie” (or large umbrella), over the nave. No final decision has yet been made about the design of the cathedral’s lost spire.

    The rector of Notre Dame Cathedral says the Paris landmark is still so fragile that there’s a “50% chance” the structure might not be saved, because scaffolding installed before this year’s fire is threatening the vaults of the Gothic monument. Monsignor Patrick Chauvet said restoration work isn’t likely to begin until 2021 — and described his “heartache” that Notre Dame couldn’t hold Christmas services this year, for the first time since the French Revolution. “Today it is not out of danger,” he told The Associated Press on the sidelines of Christmas Eve midnight Mass in a nearby church. “It will...

And in mid-January, we will meet with the special ambassador of France who is in charge of recruiting foreign specialists to work on...

    NOTRE DAME, Ind. ( - A new survey conducted by Notre Dame reveals that the university named after "Our Lady" has continued to lose its Catholic identity, which one pro-Catholic, pro-Notre Dame group ascribes mainly to a lack of Catholic representation on the faculty. Church Militant reached out to William Dempsey, a Notre Dame graduate and chairperson of the board for Sycamore Trust, an organization of Notre Dame alumni and friends that seeks to protect "the school's formative heritage — its Catholic identity and its sustaining relationship to the Church." "The survey is statistically meaningless because the participants were not...

    Attorney General William Barr in a speech Friday bemoaned the "moral upheaval" of religious values in the United States, saying it has brought "suffering and misery." Barr made the comments during an address at the University of Notre Dame Law School. He said the deterioration of religion in the country is an "organized destruction" by secularists in an "unremitting assault on religion and traditional values," according to CNN. "Among the militant secularists are many so-called progressives. But where is the progress?" Barr asked. This "upheaval" has led to growing illegitimacy rates, drug use and "angry, alienated young males," CNN reported...

    Student government refuses to condemnLast Thursday, an unauthorized sign with the words, “There is Queer Blood on Homophobic Hands,” was placed outside DeBartolo Hall and widely shared accross social media. The sign contained many articles from the Irish Rover and the Observer which reflect Catholic doctrine regarding human sexuality, implying that the authors of these were responsible for the deaths of “queer” people nationwide. Most shockingly, the sign’s message was painted in blood red, and the names of the articles’ writers were all circled in blood-red paint, drawing hostile attention to individual members of the Notre Dame community.

    Catholic World Report ^ | 9/21/19 | Chilton Williamson, Jr.
    The French government seems to have been suspiciously quick, perhaps eager, to deny the possibility that a crime of arson was responsible for the near loss of Notre-Dame de Paris.Twenty-four hours after the blaze at Notre-Dame last April 15 was brought under control, the cause of the fire was officially announced by the Élysée. In the professed view of the French government, the disaster could only have been an accident. The possibility of a deliberate attack upon the cathedral was dismissed. Nicholas Dupont-Aignan, President of Debout la France, was skeptical from the start. The government’s certainty, he suggested, did not...

    The corruption of the best yields the worst. The most obvious example is Satan, once Lucifer, once first among the angels. A mighty person or institution, if turned to evil, does vastly more harm. A rampant, stampeding elephant outweighs an angry ferret. But what if all the rage and destruction of a maddened pachyderm could be squeezed down into that ferret? Could creep among us unseen, unnoticed? Perhaps even gull us into adopting it as a pet? Then as we grew fond of it, it slowly grew in size. It imperceptibly gained power. Until at last the monster we’d...
