Holy Saturday

2015-04-04 07.43.38The Scriptures are not proclaimed, there is no Eucharist to consume, fonts are dry as even water is not blessed, until night has fallen upon the death of a Savior.

“Something strange is happening—there is a great silence on earth today, a great silence and stillness. The whole earth keeps silence because the King is asleep. The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh and he has raised up all who have slept ever since the world began. God has died in the flesh and hell trembles with fear.” — from an ancient homily for this day.
