Item No. 006174
by Anna Iakovou, illustrated by Spyros Gousis
Since ancient times, a glorious miracle has taken place each year at the Church of the All-Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem. The miracle is called the Holy Light, and it occurs on Great Saturday of Holy Week, when it is received solely by the Patriarch of Jerusalem - and then shared with a multitude of Orthodox pilgrims!
This book tells the true story of how, in 1926, a young monk named Father Mitrophanes came to witness the mystery of the Holy Light with his own eyes! Learn the dramatic story behind this event, what the monk saw, and other incredible details about the site of our Lord's burial.
