Holy Fire from Jerusalem arrives in Los Alamos

-A A +A

Father Theophan and parishioner Emrys Tennessen, of Saint Job of Pochaiv Orthodox Church in Los Alamos traveled Wednesday to Alamosa, Colorado to rendezvous with Jordanna Lynch Perry of the Archangel Michael Orthodox Church in Pueblo, Colorado to receive the flame which originated this year in Jerusalem on Pascha night.
They also stopped at the Monastery of the Holy Archangel Michael in Canones, New Mexico, on their way home, to pass the fire to the brothers there.
The Holy Fire is a miracle that occurs on the eve of Pascha each year. At the appointed time, the Patriarch of Jerusalem enters the Holy Sepulcher where Jesus Christ was buried for three days, without any fire-making implements and unlit candles.
There he waits for the Holy Fire to descend and ignite the candles, after which he emerges from the sepulcher and the fire is passed to the faithful.
Lamps lit from this fire are sent all over the world to Orthodox churches. This year is the first time a concerted effort was made to make it available in the United States.
Over the past three weeks it has spread, person to person, parish to parish, all across the country, and now to Los Alamos.
 For more information please contact Father Theophan, fr.theophan.mackey@gmail.com, or come to one of our services: 5:30 p.m. vespers on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and 10 a.m. Divine Liturgy on Sundays.
