A French priest who helped the wounded in the Paris terror attack is being praised for saving holy relics from the flaming Notre Dame Cathedral. Fire Brigade Chaplain Jean-Marc Fournier rushed straight for the Blessed Sacrament and the Crown of Thorns, believed to have been worn by Jesus Christ when he was crucified. Four years ago, Fournier comforted the wounded after the terrorist attacks on Paris in where 89 people were massacred. A number of other priceless relics were saved from the inferno when firefighters formed a human chain inside the fire-ravaged building.
