Holy Fire descended in Jerusalem today as Christians around the world prepare to celebrate Easter.

As it was reported earlier, the Orthodox and Greek Catholic believers of Kyiv will be able to greet the Holy Fire from Jerusalem. The torch with the Holy Fire will be brought to Boryspil international airport at about 7 or 8 p.m. Kyiv time. 

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.
