Paris (kath.net) They had crossed themselves only after the celebration of the Mass with holy water. But then Catholics in the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris complained of tingling on their faces and headaches. The French media reported. The water had smelled remarkably bad, a priest explained to media. However, the police who were summoned could not detect anything, so no investigation was initiated. As a precaution, however, the holy water containers of the cathedral were completely emptied and cleaned, then refilled with fresh holy water.
The Notre-Dame de Paris, built from 1163 to 1345, is one of the earliest Gothic church buildings in France and is still a diocese. In the huge five-nave interior, up to 9,000 people can assemble for liturgies. It is one of the landmarks of Paris and is visited by many tourists.
