Saving the Blessed Sacrament

Etienne Loraillère, an editor at France's KTO Catholic Television, reported that “Fr. Fournier, chaplain of the Paris Firefighters, went with the firefighters into Notre-Dame cathedral to save the crown of thorns and the Blessed Sacrament.” 

If the Blessed Sacrament just is Jesus Christ (a la transubstantiation), can't he protect himself from fire? 


  1. It would be irreverent to let Jesus Christ burn in a fire.... but not to put him into storage in a box in the wall?

  2. Fr. Fournier, the Savior of the body of God

    Catholic theology is complex :)
