US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The Holy Fire appeared in the temple of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic for the first time in ten centuries, the solemn ceremony was held behind closed doors and the complete absence of pilgrims and believers.
After the appearance of the fire, the Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilus III distributed it to the servants of the Greek Church and representatives of other faiths who own the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
Now the Holy Fire will be delivered to the Jaffa Gate of the Old City, where it will be handed out to diplomats from countries in which a significant part of the population professes Orthodoxy.
