    I heard that the cathedral collapsed, that over 400 firefighters were working on the blaze, and that they have it under control now.  What I haven't heard is what caused the fire!

    'Spiritual lightning rod' atop iconic Notre Dame spire found in rubble 



    It survived on a wing and a prayer.


    The metal rooster that once sat atop Notre Dame’s iconic spire was discovered by a worker

    combing through the rubble of the Gothic cathedral in Paris on Tuesday.



    “Incredible! One of the members of the @GMHistoriques found the rooster of the top of the spire 

    of #NotreDame in the rubble,” tweeted Jacques Chanut, president of the French Federation of
     
    Building, along with a photo of the worker cradling the bird sculpture.



    A spokesman for the Ministry of Culture confirmed to AFP that the cock, which topped the 300-

    foot spire, had been saved.




    “It is dented but properly restorable,” a Ministry of Culture source added to Le Parisien 

    newspaper.



    Three relics were stashed inside the rooster, but because the sculpture was smashed in, 

    authorities haven’t yet been able to verify that they are still there, the source added.



    Inside were a relic of St. Denis, one of St. Genevieve and what was believed to have been one of

    the 70 thorns from Jesus Christ’s crown added in 1935 by the archbishop of Paris.



    Historians say that the rooster and its treasure served as a “spiritual lightning rod” to protect the

    faithful of the 850-year-old cathedral and all Parisians, according to the cathedral Web site.
