Holy Fire was delivered to Cyprus

At the old airport of Larnaka, a private jet landed with the Holy Fire, descended from the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem. He was met by Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Kitia, government officials and representatives of the island's motor clubs. On cars and motorcycles, Holy Fire will be delivered to all corners of Cyprus. It is expected that this process will be completed to 23: 30.

Recall that last year the Cyprus Orthodox Church chartered a private jet, which was to arrive in Larnaca from Tel Aviv in 18: 30. The liner drove to the runway, where the cargo transport with luggage touched. Due to damage to the chassis, the flight was canceled. Cyprus rescued a Russian businessman, who sent his plane from Larnaca to Tel Aviv. As a result, the fire arrived in Cyprus at 22: 15.

Friends, you wrote then in the comments that everything will be fine. So it eventually turned out. We heartily congratulate you on the Easter of Christ. We wish you a worthy celebration of the Feast of Feasts, so that with a pure soul you can turn to the brothers by faith with joyful words: "Christ is Risen!" And to hear in response what has been said for many centuries: "Truly Risen!"
