Holy Saturday is a long empty day in the Christian calendar, when we wait outside the tomb, wondering what will happen.
On this Holy Saturday we stand, sit or kneel outside the Lord’s tomb, meditating on his passion and death, and on his descent into hell, and awaiting his resurrection with prayer and fasting. At a time when we are in lockdown we can feel the longing for redemption which charecterised Jesus disciples as they waited on this day.
The Church remains solemn and silent until the celebration of the Easter Vigil in the evening of today.
The Easter Vigil will be live-streamed from St. Teilo’s at 7.00pm tonight.
The newsletter for Easter Sunday and Easter Week is now available.
