HONOLULU - Bishop Larry Silva of the Honolulu Diocese spoke with Good Morning Hawaii about the significance of Notre Dame cathedral to the Catholic church and how it's destruction impacts Catholics in Hawaii.

"We are in solidarity with all Catholics throughout the world, Catholic means universal and the fact that our brothers and sisters in Paris are suffering this great loss is something that we suffer along with their family, as the whole world does," said Bishop Silva. "So we are with them in prayer and I'm sure that during Holy Week we will be praying for them and praying for the restoration of this beautiful Cathedral of Notre Dame."

Bishop Silva says he was shocked to watch as something that took so long to build could be gone in a flash.
