ISRAEL Jerusalem. Worshippers gather in the rotunda of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to light their candles from the ‘Holy Fire’ on the eve of Easter Sunday as the faithful flocked on April 03, 2010 around the church, built over the sites where Christians believe Christ was crucified and buried, in the narrow cobblestone alleys of annexed east Jerusalem’s Old City. Tens of thousands of Christian pilgrims from Eastern churches converged on the Holy City to take part in the Easter ‘Holy Fire’ vigil in which the ‘miracle’ light from Jesus’s tomb is shared by candles to the crowd.
