Fire Brigade Chaplain Rescued Crown of Thorns and Blessed Sacrament From Notre Dame Fire

The irreplaceable relic and the Blessed Sacrament was saved on Monday evening by the firefighters’ chaplain, Jean-Marc Fournier during the burning of the cathedral - the chaplain charged into the burning cathedral

Paris (kath.net/KAP) As the broadcaster KTO reported on Tuesday, the saving of the crown of thorns and the Blessed Sacrament was by the valor of the fire department's chaplain Jean-Marc Fournier. The chaplain of the Paris Fire Brigade went on Monday evening with a group of firefighters into the burning Notre-Dame Cathedral and had opened the tabernacle, as well as the reliquary in which the crown of thorns reposed. Fournier then hurried out of the cathedral with the monstrance. It was feared that the religious treasures would be lost by the fire. "Father Fournier is an absolute hero," KTO quoted a member of the emergency services: "He showed no fear at all, as he went straight to the relics in the cathedral and made sure that they were saved."

In 2015, the Parisian priest had comforted the wounded after the Bataclan massacre, the worst terrorist attack in Paris in this century. [One of the worst since Muslims invaded France in the 8th century] He has become the "hero of the Notre-Dame-fire,” said a paramedic: "He deals with life and death every day, and he shows no fear."

Plot: Templars hid the Holy Grail Relic in Notre Dame Cathedral while Occultists try

The "Blessed Sacrament" was rescued from the flames?
I have my doubts.
For anyone who has ever attended "Mass" at N-D-de-Paris, I can only say,
The Sanctissimum has been absent for more than 50 years.
