Have you ever wondered what we are supposed to think of on Holy Saturday? On Good Friday, we obviously meditate on the passion of Christ, and His great sacrifice for us on the cross. Then, on Easter, we celebrate Christ’s resurrection. Yet, what are we supposed to be thinking about or doing on Holy Saturday?
Here are a few resources to help with that.
Firstly, what are some general things to know about Holy Saturday? I think this explainer article at the Catholic Register will help.
Secondly, to get into the ‘Holy Saturday spirit’, try reflecting on this beautiful ancient Holy Saturday homily which summarizes what the day is really all about.
As a bonus for those keeners among you, if you just want to know more about the Paschal Triduum in general, then this short video from Fr. Chris Alar MIC contains much information about Holy Week and the Paschal Triduum, which provides a context for Holy Saturday.
Wishing all of you a blessed Holy Saturday, and a joy-filled Easter Season when it begins!
God bless you!
