The plane with the Holy Fire, which descended on Great Saturday, April 15, in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, arrived to the international airport Boryspil, reports UNN.
The fire was delivered by a delegation of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church headed by the administrator of the UOC affairs, Metropolitan Anthony.
Representatives of the Diocese of the UOC from all over Ukraine, as well as numerous believers, received holy fire right at the airport.
Holy Fire descends every year on Saturday, a day before Orthodox Easter at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. According to ancient traditions, the annual mysterious flame on Holy Land is a sign of God’s blessing, which notifies about care of the lord and gives believers hope that God prolongs world’s being for another year.
