The Miracle of Holy Fire (The Drew Mariani Show)

Imagine this: you’re in Jerusalem, standing in the dark, hushed and hopeful, when suddenly a bundle of 33 candles bursts into flame with a heavenly light—no matches, no tricks, just pure, jaw-dropping awe. That’s the miracle of the Holy Fire,

Join Drew Mariani and Fr. Richard Simon as they explore the awe-inspiring miracle of the Holy Fire, a phenomenon that has sparked faith and wonder for centuries! This podcast episode takes you on a journey to the sacred chambers of Jerusalem’s Jesus’s tomb.

It’s worth noting that this event takes place every year on the Orthodox calendar!

So why would God allow this miracle to happen outside of the Roman Catholic Church? Fr. Simon has some interesting thoughts on this, and he and Drew encourage you to reflect on some of the other miracles that have happened in our Church’s history, such as the miracle of the sun at Fatima.

So, light a candle, settle in, and let this discussion ignite your faith and enlighten your spirit! Whether you’re a devout believer or a curious skeptic, this episode of The Drew Mariani Show offers a captivating glimpse into the miraculous, melding historical mystery with contemporary faith. 🕊️✝️

Remember, sometimes faith involves accepting the inexplicable, finding unity in our shared awe, and recognizing the flickers of the divine in the flames of the Holy Fire.
