The light from Jerusalem القدس - بيت المقدس It was a magical moment, being in Beirut downtown on Hossein's B-day on Saturday April 19 to get the light from Jerusalem Hundreds of people of all religions were waiting together with the priests from Saint Gerius مار جريس church who were to receive the light that was traveling from Jerusalem to the world The Saturday of light سبت النور is the day between the crucification of Christ and his resurrection. On that day, it is said that light comes out from his tomb in Jerusalem, a sacred eternal light that protects and does not burn While waiting in the downtown square, the sound of Islamic praying from two surrounding mosques were heard mixing with the sounds of the Christians hymns and the voices of the crowds The light of my candle feels like a friendly presence of Hossein. The light can’t be conquered, instead it floods, rolls, spins, moves, sparkles, dances giving us joy. It is about Hossein’s wisdom that we can pass from one person to the other, just as we pass the light, a light out of darkness By May Haddad, Beirut 25 April 2014
