MOSCOW, April 10. /TASS/. A delegation of the Andrew the First-Called Foundation involving well-known Russian politicians, cultural and sports figures is leaving for Jerusalem on Friday to get the Holy Fire, the foundation told TASS.
The delegation is expected to bring the sacred flame, which Orthodox Christians believe is miraculously lit each year at the Holy Sepulcher Church in Jerusalem on Holy Saturday, the day preceding Orthodox Easter (Pascha), to downtown Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral by the start of the Easter divine service to be led by Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia.
The plane with the Holy Fire is expected to land at the Vnukovo Airport outside of Moscow at 22:00 Moscow Time on Saturday, April 11 (19:00 UTC).
Every year, the flame is delivered to thousands of churches worldwide. This year, it will for the first time be brought to Serbia.
The Holy Fire has been delivered to Moscow from Israel annually since 2003.
