Ethiopian Orthodox faithful call for peace during Meskel festival

Written by on September 27, 2022

Thousands of Orthodox Christians gathered in Addis Ababa to celebrate the annual festival of Meskel, which marks the historic discovery of the cross on which Jesus was crucified.

The final bonfire recalls the efforts of Saintt Helena, the mother of Emperor Constantine, to find the cross. This year, the faithful prayed for peace and an end to the civil war in the country.
