In the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, the ceremony of the ascent of the Holy Fire was held. The fire will be given to the faithful, who will carry it around the world.
A live broadcast of the ascent can be viewed on YouTube.
The ceremony was attended by about 2.5 thousand people. All of them provided certificates confirming the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The ceremony was held in the place where Jesus Christ is buried. Let us emphasize that there has never been a case in history when the Holy Fire did not descend to the Ground before Easter.
