Holy Saturday


On Holy Saturday, we keep vigil at the Lord’s tomb, meditating on his passion and death, and on his descent into hell, awaiting his resurrection and ours.

it is a time of silence, because there is no plausible explanation of what has become of Jesus. It is a time of confusion and sorrow. It is a time of suffering in a place of unknowing. It is a time of wondering.

On Holy Saturday, the earth waits in stillness for the miracle of resurrection. There is not much we can say, so we wait.
