- Title: Holy Fire 001
Many Christian pilgrims visiting the Holy Land over Easter will try and catch the Good Friday events in the Old City of Jerusalem. Some will even stay over the weekend because of yet more celebrations.
Every Easter Saturday the “Holy Fire” miraculously appears in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City. The Holy Fire appears when the Patriarch of Jerusalem enters a small structure built over Christ’s actual, historic tomb. He enters inside, closes the door, and two large candles are miraculously lit as he is uttering prayers. When he exits the tomb he uses his lit candles to light the candles of pilgrims, who in turn light other pilgrims’ candles.
