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 Microphones 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.

    Gorgeous book and story of the Holy Light

    Published by ALYSSA Christine MCCREA on Mar 1st 2023

    This is a beautiful publication--one that I've come to expect from New Rome Press. High quality paper and binding, gorgeous illustrations and typesetting. and a wonderful story. My only negative is that this is not a young children's book--it is a long story with many details. Even with an adult reading it to a child, I think we'd still be looking at middle to late elementary school at least. I bought it for my soon-to-be 7 year old goddaughter who is a good beginning reader, but I think this is too much for her. I will save it for her until the appropriate time. I'd love it if the book descriptions indicated the number of pages, and the reading level in the future.
