Christians Mark Easter Sunday At Ancient Holy Site

April 8, 2012 by staff 

Christians Mark Easter Sunday At Ancient Holy Site, Thousands of Christians gathered in Jerusalem for Easter Sunday to commemorate Jesus Christ’s resurrection, crowding into one of Christianity’s holiest churches, worshipping, singing and praying.

Catholics and Protestants took in turns to hold ceremonies within the ancient Church of the Holy Sepulcher, built on the site where many Christians believe Jesus was crucified and buried.

Inside, clergymen in flowing white and gold robes celebrated Mass, the air thick with incense plumes. Believers swarmed through the winding church — a series of cave-like spaces decked with ornate decorations and stairways leading to galleries and descending into dark, cavernous rooms, joined by a soaring dome roof.

Different and often feuding Christian sects control parts of the Sepulcher, heavy with incense, filled with scurrying monks and awed crowds.
