Christian Orthodox worshippers hold up candles lit from the ‘Holy Fire’ as thousands gather in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem’s Old City on April 03, 2010 during the Orthodox Easter ceremony of the ‘Holy Fire’. The ceremony celebrated in the same way for 11 centuries, is marked by the appearance of ‘sacred fire’ in the two cavities on either side of the Holy Sepulchre.
