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, on April 30, 2016, during the Orthodox Easter ceremonies.  The ceremony has been carried out the same way for eleven centuries and is marked by the appearance of a sacred fire in the two cavities on either side of the Holy Sepulchre.
