Wednesday, 17 April 2019 05:38 AM

Pope Francis has told his weekly audience at St. Peter's Square of his sadness over the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral, the seat of the Paris archdiocese.

The pope said Wednesday that "I take this opportunity to express to the Paris diocesan community, all Parisians and the entire French population my great affection and my closeness after the fire in Notre Dame Cathedral."

Addressing those gathered, pope said, "I was very sad and I feel very close to all of you."

He expressed "the gratitude of the whole church to those who did their utmost to save the Basilica, also risking their lives."

The pope on Tuesday sent a telegram of condolences to Paris Archbishop Michel Aupetitand and phoned French President Emmanuel Macron to express his solidarity.
