The great gothic nave at Notre-Dame de Paris, planted on the banks of the Seine for the past eight centuries, was built on prayer. Cardinal Lustiger wrote that this building, which lives through the faith and prayer of its believers, is steeped in human and Christian experience . Cardinal Feltin  wrote that the lines of the arches and the spire convey the movement of prayer, through which the soul raises itself upward to God, who is the Spirit and Love . All is prayer in this great Christian site.
The prayers rise endlessly heavenward, with four daily masses, six Sunday masses, Lauds and Vespers services, the prayer requests of pilgrims, visitors, believers and non-believers, the willing of all ages, all conditions and all nationalities, who have come to confide in Notre-Dame.
