Holy Saturday

Holy Saturday is the day to spend time reflecting on the powerful reality of Jesus’ death.

There is no liturgy on Holy Saturday until the Easter Vigil.  It is important to keep this day holy and let our “sense” of the mystery of Jesus’ death shape our reflection as we long to celebrate the Easter gift of Jesus alive, for us and with us.  On Holy Saturday, the Church waits at the Lord's tomb in prayer, meditating on his Passion and Death and on his Descent into Hell, and awaiting his Resurrection.  Let us celebrate this night as we enkindle the new Easter fire with hearts full of hope and love!
