In the Holy Sepulchre Church of Jerusalem, believers await the miraculous descent of the Holy Fire.
The pilgrims entered the temple following specific rules.
From the New Gate into the temple, police officers and representatives of the Jerusalem Patriarchate allowed only those vaccinated for the novel coronavirus.
Not vaccinated people stayed in the monasteries.
Believers say the descent of the Holy Fire is a divine sign, and the fire does not burn for the first 10-15 minutes. During this time, believers wash their faces with the fire.
