"The conflagration burned through the Windy City Oct. 8-10, 1871. 

"And the city's cathedral was not spared when it was a parish church."

In a recent commentary, writer Amy Smith reflected on this Chicago fire, a major wildfire on the same date in Wisconsin, and challenges faced by the local church during both events.
