Romanian nuns celebrate Easter among the skulls of their dead sisters as Orthodox Christians pack churches around the world

As thousands of Orthodox Christians celebrated Easter Sunday today with services around the world, worshippers in Romania visited an underground room of skulls to mark Jesus Christ’s resurrection.

The nuns sing among the remains of the dead to mark Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday, which is today in the Orthodox calendar

The ossuary at Pasarea monastery near Bucharest contains mainly the remains of nuns who lived there.

A Romanian Orthodox priest led a service as nuns held candles and sang, while visitors looked on.

More than 85 per cent of Romanians are Orthodox Christian. They celebrate the resurrection of Christ on the evening before Easter Sunday, when a holy flame originating in Jerusalem is passed between churches.

Worshippers visit their local church with candles and take the flame – which is seen as a light from God – back into their homes for Easter Sunday.

The flame is brought from Jerusalem by members of the Romanian Orthodox clergy after an event called the Holy Fire ceremony at one of Christianity’s holiest churches.
