Palestinian scouts perform as they take part in the ceremony of the Holy Fire outside the Church of the Nativity, which is built over the traditional site of Jesus' birth in Bethlehem, April 19, 2014. During the annual ceremony, top clerics enter the Aedicule, the small chamber marking the site of Jesus' tomb at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher Jerusalem, traditionally believed to be the burial site of Jesus Christ. They emerge after to reveal candles lit with "Holy Fire" said to be miraculously lit as a message to the faithful from heaven. The details of the flame's source are a closely guarded secret.
