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, April 23, 2011, during
the "Holy Fire" ceremony on the eve of the Orthodox Easter. 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. The Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is the site
of the final resting place of Jesus Christ, according to Christian tradition.
