I made this photo during EASTER VIGIL mass in wich the prist lights the PASCAL candle. At this time the small church is in a compleate darkness, the priest enters with the candle and then the people starts tolight their candles with that light...here is that moment.

A real moment to record. I appreciate the difficulty and conditions and you have done very well. Just could have done to be a bit brighter still in places . Might be able to lift it with the dodge tool but might loose contrast and that would ruin it.

Very well taken, in very difficult conditions. On first seeing this, I thought maybe the hand and candle on the left were an intrusion and better without them, concentrate on the priest and the main candle alone. But reading your narrative I understand that the worshiper's candle is an essential part of the story. The candle light reflected in the priest's eye is a big bonus.
You have a steady hand, assuming that this was hand-held. I think my instinct would have been to use a larger aperture, lower ISO, but that wouldn't have given such a clean outline on sleeve, face and candle.
The image is very nearly mono - I might try a straight b&w, with a little more contrast, but very little. This is about light shining very gently in darkness.

Nice shot, steady hands, nice timing. I was surprised to see the person behind in cats mod, an awkward way to hold the candle!

I uploaded a mod to leave a little more space on the left, and a couple of tweaks.
