The Holy Fire is a tradition that occurs every year at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem on Great Saturday, the day before Orthodox Easter. During the ceremony, a prayer is performed after which a fire is lit inside the aediculae where the Tomb of Jesus is located. According to the belief, the fire emerges miraculously and is lit by the Holy Spirit.
