French MPs on July 16 approved a law on the reconstruction of Notre-Dame, three months after flames ravaged the great Paris cathedral, but with the rebuilding process still mired in controversy. The April 15 fire destroyed the roof and steeple of the 850-year-old Gothic cathedral. Images of the ancient cathedral going up in flames sparked shock and dismay across the globe as well as in France, where it is considered one of the nation’s most beloved landmarks.

Salve Regina je ena od štirih najpomembnejših katoliških marijanskih antifon. Nastala je v srednjem veku, avtorstvo se pripisuje Hermanu Contractu. Po tem spevu pa se imenuje tudi zgoščenka, ki so jo glasbeno oblikovali izvajalci oz. glasbene skupine, ki delujejo v katedrali Notre Dame v Parizu. Da so izbrali tak naslov, ne preseneča: zavetnica te slovite katedrale, ki jo je v letošnjem aprilu močno poškodoval požar, je Naša Gospa oz. Blažena Devica Marija – njej jo je daljnega leta 1163 posvetil škof Maurice de Sully, ko se je začela njena gradnja.
