Holy Fire Comes To Imprisoned Patriarch

Guest_2 is asking for prayers for Jerusalem Patriarch Ireneos who has been imprisoned since February 2008.  Through the Google translation it appears that the Holy Fire came to him at his cell and N0T to the pseudo-patriarch Theofilos who supplanted him.

And this is confirmed by the Patriarch's Secretary:

My Dear Joanna,
Truly He is Risen!!!
It is true that the Holy Fire FIRST went to his Beatitude, Irenaeos I, at his cell [apartment] and then went to the people in a huge spiral !! It was a surprise to his Holiness because he was not expecting the Holy Fire. Of course, this shows who the true Patriarch of Jerusalem is!!
God bless you Joanna,
Fr. John
Secretary pro-tem to his Holiness IRENAEOS I, PATRIARCH of JERUSALEM and of all PALESTINE.
