Armenian Patriarch of Istanbul Mesrob Muta'sian (right) talks to other ..Armenian priest as they take part of the Holy Fire ceremony in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, Saturday, May 4, 2002. Orthodox Christians marked the holy fire with no sign of a break in the siege of one of Christianity's holiest shrines, the Church of Nativity in nearby Bethlehem, now entering its second month. The standoff, which began April 2, cast a pall over Orthodox Christians' celebration of Holy Week, which are about a month later than Easter observances under the Western church calendar.
