BETHLEHEM, April 19, 2014 - Christian pilgrims touch the Holy Fire at the Church of the Nativity in the West Bank city of Bethlehem, April 19, 2014. During the annual ceremony, top clerics enter the Aedicule, the small chamber of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in the Old City of Jerusalem which is traditionally believed to be the burial site of Jesus, then they emerge to reveal candles lit with the Holy Fire. The source of the Holy Fire is a closely guarded secret, believers say the flame appears spontaneously from the tomb on the day before Easter.
