PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, April 18 (Itar-Tass) — The Holy Fire from Jerusalem was brought to Kamchatka from Moscow by an Aeroflot flight on Wednesday, a source in the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and Kamchatka eparchy told Itar-Tass.
The Holy Fire was taken round Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and brought to the Cathedral of St. Trinity in the territorial centre, where the prayer will be served for the Holy Fire. The pieces of the Holy Fire will be given to clergymen then and brought to their dioceses. The believers will be able to take a piece of the Holy Fire and bring it to their homes.
The piece of the Holy Fire was brought to the Kamchatka Peninsula, the easternmost Russian region, only on the fourth day after Great Saturday on the eve of the Orthodox Easter. This step is explained by a long distance from Moscow, where the Holy Fire was brought from Jerusalem and from where the Holy Fire is delivered to all Russian regions, a source in the Kamchatka eparchy said.
Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is situated 11,876 kilometres away from the Russian capital. The direct flight from the Moscow airports to the main airport of the easternmost Russian city lasts about nine hours on average.
