Sans prétendre m'avancer sur les spécificités de #NotreDame, je voudrais livrer ici un témoignage privilégié de ce qu'est une cathédrale aujourd'hui, agacé que je suis des propos lunaires de M. Pastoureau et d'autres. Thread qui en intéressera vraiment plus d'un.
Il se trouve que ces 2 dernières années, mon boulot a consisté à me tenir dans une cabine d'1 mètre carré juste à l'entrée d'une cathédrale du matin au soir. Le boulot était détestable, mais le cadre fut une expérience sociale et humaine tout à fait particulière. 1/
Le chiant d'abord : à l'ère du tourisme de masse, la fonction muséale des cathédrales prend le pas sur le reste. On alterne entre l'été un brouhaha insupportable et irrespectueux, et l'hiver des journées de solitude où l'on adressera pas une fois la parole à un être humain. 2/

Ayer, esta imagen dio la vuelta al mundo en un acto excepcional: el Papa impartió la bendición eucarística en una insólitamente vacía Plaza de San Pedro, tras rezar ante un icono y un crucifijo.

Son #imágenes muy especiales.

¿Queréis saber más sobre ellas?

El icono de la Virgen “Salus Populi Romani” (salud –protectora– del pueblo romano) es un #icono que se venera en la capilla Borghese de la basílica de Santa María la Mayor.

Es una representación antiquísima, atribuida a san Lucas.
Sí, sí, a san Lucas, el evangelista. Y no es la única. Según diversas tradiciones, el discípulo de Cristo habría pintado otros iconos marianos.
¿Reconoces estos? ¿Conoces más?

I am going to do my thread on the reason I believe the UN encouraged and allowed unrestrained, uncontrolled human migration from Africa for the past decade into Europe and North America.
As you know I started looking into the #grid I found accidentally when I began looking at #holyground sites, and how they were connected between buildings. I believe it is connected by underground water systems, natural and manmade.
I began to find an old grid made up of old Obelisks, war memorials, buildings with towers and spires, clocks, fountains, circular sites, statuary, parks, churches and mosques.

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.

I hated these alumni when I was a student and now that we share a status I hate them even more.*** #NotreDame /1
I don't even want to point out that, even leaving aside his baggage, Urban Meyer lost by 29 to Purdue last year and 31 to Iowa the year before, or that he was 22-3 in 2017 and 2018 where Brian Kelly was 22-4. #NotreDame /2
Because you can't "leave aside his baggage." I do not want his ass anywhere near Our Lady's University.

Florida and Ohio State may be okay with the results of their devil's bargain; I'm not. And I sure as hell don't want to pay millions for his shady taint. #NotreDame /3

With unswerving loyalty, Stephen
Miller has singular control of an
issue central to the presidency

And the chilling parallels that echo Germany in the 1930s.

“Night of the Broken Glass” = Trump’s Immigration Raids
The horrors at the border are the result of Steven Miller’s singular agenda to make America a homogenous (European) genetically pure society & in so doing destroy any vestige of the rich multiculturalism we enjoy now.

1. Prejudice

4. Persecution

I have lots of new followers so I am going to start at the beginning.
On May 25th 2019 I found a magnetic rock in a gravel pit.
It was really cool and got me thinking that if one little rock was so powerful what about tons of rock?
I was talking about my special little nugget and someone put me on to #leylines. Never heard of them. Found out some cool stuff here.…
I started looking at the Cairns the settlers put all over the place. What were they?
Soon enough I discovered that a #cairn was put at the junction of 2 powerful leylines.
I still didn't understand what a leyline was. I thought it was a stone formation. I got my lead pendulum out and started looking for them around my country property. I found positive

After a fire devastated Notre-Dame in April, we launched an investigation into what happened.

We found that an early miscommunication led to a delay that put the cathedral dangerously close to collapsing. This is the story of how it was saved. #NotreDame…
At 6:18 pm on April 15, a smoke alarm went off at Notre-Dame. A guard was sent to check for fire, but he found nothing.

Nearly 30 minutes passed before they realized a critical mistake: the guard had gone to the wrong building.

The full story is here:…
The delay put firefighters in a near impossible position.

The fire had consumed the roof of the cathedral, causing the spire to collapse.

The northern tower was under threat. If it fell, they feared it could bring down the whole cathedral.

Il suffit d'ajouter "macronienne" à un mot pour lui faire perdre sa signification
Ainsi la justice macronienne n'est pas la justice et l'écologie macronienne n'est pas l'écologie

À ceux qui se demandaient encore pourquoi la loi d’exception pour #NotreDame prévoit de décider des abords sur ordonnance...
Vous avez là des éléments de compréhension : des pans entiers d’un lieu de charité vont être privatisés et transformés en commerces .
Les rooftops manquaient pour contempler la nouvelle flèche devant « répondre aux enjeux du XXIe siècle »
On pourra bientôt prendre des mojitos là où avant on soignait les indigents.
On a déjà déménagé le palais de justice. Il y avait une belle réserve foncière à récupérer, des m2 à plusieurs dizaines de milliers d’euros.
On va pouvoir transformer l’Ile de la Cité en un Disneyland pour touriste. Ce sera chouette de penser à Victor Hugo.

Powerlessness makes people feel detached, abandoned & desperate. Abusive behavior by those w wealth & power deepens the crisis. In such conditions, a con-man who makes menacing threats against the other convinces the powerless to degrade their own humanity & give up their rights.
This should not be the story of American politics in the 21st century, or of European democracies, or of any other place. We are watching these forces work with horrifying efficiency, but we must remember: these are not the only forces at work & they are *not* the most powerful.
Whether to confront the #OttawaFloods or to rally in support of the cultural heritage & human achievement of #NotreDame, or the global collaboration among young people to demand a #ClimateSmart future, constructive engagement empowers people & makes more good possible.

(Thread) La Religion Civile vue par Rousseau, concept réapparu au cours de la Révolution Française des lumières. #1789
À mettre en parallèle avec 2019 et les #GiletsJaunes, #NotreDame, l’Agenda chaotique en cours.
Article à retrouver en intégralité :…
Le clergé et le catholicisme ne sont plus considérés comme fiables par les Révolutionnaires, et ils décident alors comme Rousseau l’avait proposé, d’instituer une religion civile. Rousseau qui était protestant, appréciait beaucoup la religion chrétienne, mais (...)
considérait que le chrétien ne fait pas un bon soldat prêt à mourir pour la patrie, d’où la nécessité de l’établissement d’une religion civile qui crée le sentiment d’obligation de l’individu envers l’ État et soude le corps social.

J’ai vu passer quelques demandes sur les définitions entre restauration et reconstruction ? Quelles différences ? Que dit la Charte de Venise ? Un fil basé sur les travaux, entre autres, de J.-P. Marchand, Philosophe et spécialiste d’Architecture et de Riegl. ⤵️
Je l’ai eu comme professeur lors de mon année à l’École d’Architecture de Strasbourg (ENSAS), il intervient toujours dans le Master II Architecture et Archéologie de Strasbourg.…
Tout d’abord au sujet de #NotreDame, il ne s’agit pas d’une reconstruction mais bien d’une restauration. On la restaure à son état antérieur à l’incendie. Restaurer c’est remettre en état en essayant de respecter l'aspect primitif, le style.
