Holy Saturday

Saturday of Holy Week carries a weight of its own. This day speaks to people facing great disappointment, people who are hurt and confused, and people who cry out to God but have received no answer.

Since we have the advantage of knowing what tomorrow is all about we tend to see Holy Saturday as merely a day of preparation for the big celebration, but the day actually has its own message.

This day speaks to people who are hurt and confused; to those who are living in a spiritual desert where the voice of God has not been heard. Holy Saturday teaches us to be stubborn in our faith; insisting on standing firm in it even when it feels as if all is lost.
