HISTORY OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE (Jesus' Tomb) : The shrine has rich internal and external decoration and consists of two parts: the first is a chamber the Chapel of the Archangel with the Holy Rock. There is a fragment of the Rock that was placed in front of the entrance of Jesus Christ tomb with the Greek sign “the angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door” (Matthew 28:2).
The second is the main chamber of the Holy Sepulchre, the place where Jesus disciples buried Him. In the internal are carved verses from the gospels and carvings of the event. Over the door is a relief depiction of the resurrection.On either side of the Edicule are two lines of candlesticks that belong to the Greek Orthodox, the Armenians and the Roman Catholics. They are lit according to the rite that is being celebrated. In front of the Edicule, there are four rows of lamps.
The interior of the Edicule is lined with marble and decorated with pictures, hangings, lamps and candelabra, which are numerically, divided between the three principal communities, Greek Orthodox, Armenians and Roman Catholics.There is almost always a line of people waiting to enter the Edicule. The space is confined and no more than four people can be admitted at one time. People usually spend about three minutes praying inside.
These very special candles have been lit from the eternal Holy fire at the Holy Tomb of Jesus for you! Your package will come with 5 candles, a certificate/explanation sheet and Holy Card!
