HOLY SATURDAY: Awaiting Jesus’ Resurrection

Posted by FactReal on April 23, 2011

SATURDAY OF HOLY WEEK
(Sabbatum Sanctum, Sábado Santo)
Remembering Christ in the tomb and waiting in silence for His Resurrection
Holy Saturday “is the third and final day of the Easter Triduum.” It is the day for meditating on His suffering and death while awaiting the celebration of His resurrection.

Mystery of Holy Saturday: “Utter silence, filled with anticipation for the new day…” On Holy Saturday, “while all was still, Jesus decisively transformed the world of darkness forever with the light of the Resurrection. Let us contemplate this mystery in this utter silence, filled with anticipation, as we await the One who does not disappoint.”

Readings for today
