Tens of thousands of Orthodox believers are present on Sunday, April 24, at the Resurrection Service. A few hours ago, the Holy Light was brought from Jerusalem and distributed through Dioceses in churches across the country, but also in Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova.

Tens of thousands of believers across the country attend Sunday’s Resurrection Service. In Constan╚Ťa, for example, about 5,000 people are present at the Resurrection service by the sea. The Archbishop of Tomis, Theodosius, will be in the Port of Tomis for a few minutes at sea.

“Here we will be greeted by the crowd of Christians who are just waiting to receive the Light. This Light is new, unique every year, a new light because Christ renews His Resurrection every year. The faithful are impatient and many will come to wait for us in the Cathedral Park to bring the light from the sea “, said His Eminence Theodosius, Archbishop of Tomis.

The Romanian Patriarchate has announced the program for the resurrection night. In all the churches in the country the service will start outside. At midnight, the Holy Light will be offered by His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel to the hierarchs, priests and deacons present in the porch in front of the Patriarchal Residence.

The Holy Light was brought from Jerusalem on Saturday evening, April 23, and was offered to the delegates of the dioceses of the Romanian Patriarchate present at the “Henri Coanda” International Airport.

“She (Holy Light – no.) Will leave directly from here in order to gain time, to reach in time each one to the diocesan centers where you came from. We wish you the feast of Holy Easter with light and to spend this saving night with much hope, praying together to God, in full brotherhood and solidarity, to give us too good God power, to grant peace in the world, cooperation and love between people. May God help us and the Holy Light of the Resurrection of Christ to remove all the clouds that have gathered above our world “, said one of the delegates of the dioceses of the Romanian Patriarchate at Henri Coanda Airport.

“Father Patriarch will offer this Holy Light to be lit by those present, on the steps of the patriarchal residence, so in front of this residence will be held the first part of the service. Religious services should always be free of moments that embarrass the other. I am referring to moments of crowding, of crowding, these things should not be repeated “, said Vasile B─ânescu, the spokesman of the Romanian Patriarchate.

The tradition of bringing the Holy Light by a delegation of the Romanian Patriarchate directly from Jerusalem and distributing it through Dioceses in churches across the country on the night of the Resurrection was established by His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel in 2008, according to basilica.ro.
