When Th Hymns Touch The Sky...

The "Great and Sacred" Easter is the feast of feasts, the predominant glorious moment of Orthodox Christianity. It is the great day that brings more joy, more exquisite brilliance and glory, showing  the divine light that radiates through the deified human nature of the risen Christ... 


The Holy Fire is the most renowned miracle in the world of Eastern Orthodoxy. 

It has taken place at the same time, in the same manner, in the same place every single year for centuries. 


No other miracle is known to occur so regularly and so steadily over time. 

The ceremony, which awes the souls of Christians, happens in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, the holiest place on earth, where Christ was crucified, entombed, and where He finally rose from the dead.

Holy Week, for a Greek Orthodox, means you clear your calendar, you don’t make plans for that week at all because you will be in church every day, and you fast...
