Patriarchate lights caldrons to produce Holy Myron oil

In a rare event done only once a decade, the Fener Greek Patriarchate has lit the caldrons to prepare some 350 to 400 kilos of the Holy Myron oil, which will be sent to all the Orthodox churches worldwide to be used in baptism.

The cauldrons were lit for three days after Easter on April 17, with the clergymen mixing some 57 different ingredients.
