Romanian nuns celebrate Easter among the skulls of their dead sisters as Orthodox Christians pack churches around the world.
An Orthodox priest perform his religious duties in front of an altar with skulls. The nuns are watching and chanting.
More than 85 per cent of Romanians are Orthodox Christian. They celebrate the resurrection of Christ on the evening before Easter Sunday, when a holy flame originating in Jerusalem is passed between churches.
Worshippers visit their local church with candles and take the flame – which is seen as a light from God – back into their homes for Easter Sunday.
The nuns watch the cut of skulls. They might be the remains of Protestant martyrs.
Even under the altar, the blood of the martyrs cries out from the ground.
You saw no form of any kind the day the Lord spoke to you at Horeb out of the fire. Therefore watch yourselves very carefully, so that you do not become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any shape, whether formed like a man or a woman.
The worship of death is done in the name of “Jesus”.
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
The flame is brought from Jerusalem by members of the Romanian Orthodox clergy after an event called the Holy Fire ceremony at one of Christianity’s holiest churches.
