Notre-Dame: Les images de la premire messe depuis l'incendie

Le Télégramme | Publié le 15 juin 2019 à 19h54

The clergy are wearing hardhats

(AFP)
Deux mois se sont écoulés depuis l’incendie de Notre-Dame de Paris. Le chantier de reconstruction est encore immense mais une première messe a été célébrée ce samedi. Devant un comité restreint et avec casque de chantier.

En aube mais avec un casque de chantier, l’archevêque de Paris Mgr Michel Aupetit a célébré ce samedi la première messe à Notre-Dame depuis l’incendie qui a partiellement détruit la cathédrale il y a deux mois.

Assurant que la cathédrale était « toujours vivante », le prélat a commencé son office à 18 h devant un comité restreint d’une trentaine de personnes, composé pour moitié de prêtres et réuni dans la chapelle située juste derrière le chœur.

Cette chapelle de la Vierge abritait la Couronne d’épines, un des trésors de la cathédrale aux yeux des catholiques, sauvée des flammes la nuit du sinistre.

Worshippers in hard hats to attend Notre-Dame's first mass since fire

JUNE 15, 2019 / 3:18 AM / UPDATED 4 HOURS AGO

PARIS (Reuters) - A small congregation wearing hard hats will attend mass at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on Saturday, the first service to be held since fire devastated the Gothic landmark two months ago.

Church leaders are keen to show life goes on at the cathedral as donations to help rebuild it trickle in. Less than 10% of the 850 million euros pledged by billionaires, business leaders and others has been received so far, the French government said.

Saturday’s mass, which commemorates the cathedral’s consecration as a place of worship, is due to be held at 1600 GMT in a side-chapel, with attendance limited to about 30 people who will wear the protective headgear for safety reasons.

“It is a nice symbol. A very small group of people will attend and one can understand why as there are still major safety issues,” Culture Minister Franck Riester told Europe 1 radio.

Eugénie Le Sommer et Wendie Renard se sont chargées de s’épargner toute frayeur en marquant en première période. Puis Amandine Henry a fait se lever le public parisien une dernière fois sur une frappe de loin sublime.

D-Day 75th anniversary marked by Trump and world leaders

Source: CNN

Macron thanks Allied soldiers

Presidents Trump and Macron rose to deliver a round of applause to the veterans seated behind them at the service.

Emmanuel Macron then rose to deliver his speech. He said the troops who carried out the Normandy landings were faced, above all, with "the anxiety of the unknown."

"The happy days of their youth seemed far away," he added. "What strikes still, 75 years later, is the unheard-of courage ... that strength of the soul" that the troops showed, he said. "France does not forget."

Macron thanked soldiers of all the countries that took part in the Normandy landings. He listed each Allied nation involved, and praised them for liberating France from Nazi occupation. "I bow down to you today," he said.

Macron then switched to English for a part of his speech. "On behalf of my nation, I just want to say 'thank you,'" he said, receiving huge applause from the thousands present.

p.s. Here's the print article, from this morning:

(CNN)Former Vice President Joe Biden's announcement of a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination earned him an 11-point polling bounce, leaving him head and shoulders above the rest of the Democratic candidates.

A new CNN poll conducted by SSRS after Biden's announcement on Thursday shows 39% of voters who are Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents saying he is their top choice for the nomination, up from 28% who said the same in March.

That puts Biden more than 20 points ahead of his nearest competitor, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont -- who holds 15% support in the poll -- and roughly 30 points ahead of the next strongest candidate, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (8%).

Monmouth Prez Poll: Biden Still the Leader with 27%; Booker Tied with Hickenlooper at 2%

By Insider NJ | April 23, 2019, 9:00 am

In a field of 24 announced and potential contenders, Joe Biden currently has the support of 27% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters, which is similar to his 28% support in March and 29% in January, according to this morning’s Monmouth University Poll. Support for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is currently at 20%, which is down slightly from 25% in March, but still higher than his 16% support in January.

“If Biden does enter the race this week, he starts off with a fairly stable amount of good will from Democrats. We might even expect to see a small bump after his announcement, but the bigger question will be what happens when those voters start taking a closer look at him on the campaign trail. It’s a long way to Iowa and a lot can happen,” said Murray.

South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg currently has 8% support. He registered less than 1% in prior Monmouth polls. California Sen. Kamala Harris has 8% support, off just slightly from 10% in March and 11% in January. Rounding out the field of top contenders are Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 6% (from 8% in both March and January) and former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke at 4% (6% in March and 7% in January).

Others who score at least 1% include New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (2%, from 5% in March and 4% in January), former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (2%, from 1% in priorpolls), Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar (1%, from 3% in March and 2% in January), and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (1%, from 1% in March). The remaining 14 names asked about in the survey receive support from less than 1% of Democratic voters at this time, which is basically unchanged from their support levels in prior national Monmouth polls.
