I've recently learned the history of the Holy Fire miracle and it is very interesting. The wonders and manner in which the Uncreated Light of God has manifested into creation are simply astounding. Has anyone gone? Can you share your experience with us? I badly wish to go and hope I do before I leave this world.

There's a very good book written about the miracle and the service. Its more of a historical study of the rite from its inception to the present, and peoples attitudes toward it through the centuries. Its called, 'The Paschal Fire in Jerusalem'.

 

 I've known one person who has attended the Holy Fire service a couple of times, and has confirmed unusual phenomenon she personally witnessed with the flame.

I have received this special blessing: to be there on the Holy Easter of 2001. It is hard for me to find the proper words that would describe those moments; I have touched the light, from my candle and it did not burn my fingers, but comforted my soul,my whole being...I have seen how the candle held by a monk have been lighted by the Holy Light. May God help you arrive there! However, I have heard that, lately, it is very hard to get into the church on the Holy Saturday.

Yes - in my English way, I said, 'it could be better organised'!
