Holy Fire descended in the Jerusalem church of the Holy Sepulcher. It is considered a sanctity for believers, and its appearance is called a miracle.
The appearance of fire symbolizes the exit of the "True Light" from the Holy Sepulcher , that is, the resurrected Jesus Christ.
The delegation of the Kyiv Patriarchate will deliver the Holy Fire to Ukraine from Jerusalem on Saturday, April 7, at 19:40 Kyiv time.
We recall, Holy Fire comes down every year on Saturday before the Orthodox Easter in the church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem. The service of convergence of the Holy Fire commits the Jerusalem Patriarch personally in the chapel of the Holy Sepulcher. Then Christians spread fire with candles and special lamps all over the world.
