The Holy Fire


Miracles always happen
I have lived a miracle
I have seen the Holy Fire
At noon, on Holy Saturday
descending like a sword,
swirling like a smoky coil
before lighting the candle
of the girl next to me.

Miracles always happen
Some minds deny the truth
Others cling to concreteness
But Jesus is always there
it is a mere cowardice
to seek safety in negations
“Logic is like the sword–
those who appeal to it shall perish by it.”


  1. A fascinating video, Sofia. I had never heard of this event before, although I guessed it was related to the Greek Orthodox Church once I started watching. I’ve just looked up a little more about it. Your accompanying poem is lovely.

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and watching. I first saw the Holy FIre in 2011 and ever since I have been going every Easter. I cannot describe the experience. It is simply amazing! Have a nice week ahead and thank you so much for liking my poem!😉


      1. You’re welcome, Sofia. 🙂 I’m sorry I took so long to get back to you but I’m desperately trying to get on with the third book of my trilogy at the moment, so my blogging time is scarce. Things will improve later in the year.
        I agree, the Holy Fire looked quite awesome!

    1. Καλή Μεγάλη εβδομάδα Αλεξία μου. Να χαίρεσαι την οικογένεια σου. Ο Χριστός να σας σκέπει


  3. Miracles indeed often happen in many lives of believer and non-believers, just as it was true in biblical times. God will seek to inspire hearts to gaze his way. I love your message Sofia! Hugs my sister!
