Designer's Description

Our faith is ardent,The fire brought everything back to life, we live a moment of absolute truthThe ashes fall quickly, they brood the hope of a resurrectionThe stone of the Holy Sepulcher was also blown away by the blastOur faith is a tidal wave,We must overthrow the old man to put on the new oneAnd we no longer feel the weight of the thousand-year-old building,Carried away by a background waveOur faith is an earthquake,A discharge of energy that springs from the heart and pierces the vaultWe will find as an old friend the arrow that men loved,Sublimating the chaos, it will repair the wounds.The arrow will rise againIt’s a rocket to heaven on takeoff
