The miracle of the Holy Fire! Each year on Orthodox Holy Saturday, the Patriarch of Jerusalem enters the altar of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and "prays with tears for the sins of the people done in ignorance, raiding his hands on high, doing this three times; those around him do the same thing." A flame ignites in a niche by God's will. The Patriarch lights a candle from it, and the Deacons light additional candles from the Patriarchs. The fire is passed to all. Christ is Risen!
