Holy Fire Ceremony

Testimony of the Armenian Orthodox Patriarch
Abba Seraphim asked the same question of the present Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem, His Beatitude Torkom II, who has held that position since 1994. Patriarch Torkom is highly respected as a man of absolute integity. Although the Greek Patriarch presides at the ceremony of the New Fire, the Armenian Patriarch - by ancient precedent - enters the Edicule with the Greek Patriarch and comes out after him. He answered unequivocally that the 'New Fire' is taken from a light already in the tomb and is not miraculously ignited.
