The Bethlehem Fire of Peace will reach Ukraine today, December 16. The correspondent of 112 Ukraine TV channel reported this on Friday morning.
‘It’s going to be the first time when the Fire comes to Sumy (northeastern Ukraine, - 112 International). Ukrainian scouts will bring it to the city, and people will gather in the downtown to take a look at it. Then, the Fire will be delivered in turns to churches, hospitals, nurseries and orphanages,’ the reporter said.
The key goal of the event is to turn the society’s attention to those who stayed far away from their families and those who need help. The citizens and their families will come to see the fire; they will take icon lamps to keep the fire alight in their houses. By doing so, they will pray for peace in their country,’ the reporter said.
