The Multi-Millions Donated to Notre Dame

The destruction to Notre Dame is horrendous. That this event occurred during Holy Week makes us question, “What is the motive, was it intentional?”

Already two millionaires, most likely billionaires, offered donations of $100 million each. Other worldly donations are being offered.

But if these magnificent donations can be offered so quickly, so readily, why do we have starving people on this planet? Why do we have those who are homeless?

Christ would say you need not honor me by these elaborate, expensive structures but honor me by caring for the least of my brethren: the poor, the oppressed, the ones who have lost all hope. For only then you have truly honored me.

Maybe that’s the motive. Maybe it was Jesus’s intention. Maybe it was His message to us.
