Holy Saturday ((Artist and description))
(Also known as Black Saturday.)
- A day of silence and prayer which commemorates the dead Christ in the tomb. No Mass is celebrated. In cases of the danger of death, Eucharistic Hosts remaining from the Liturgies of the two previous days are used as viaticum.
- The Tabernacle is left empty and open. The lamp or candle usually situated next to the Tabernacle denoting the Presence of Christ is put out, and the Eucharist is kept elsewhere, usually the sacristy, with a lamp or candle burning before it.
Suggestions: Read through the Gospel account of our Lord’s crucifixion and burial.
Fast during one meal and pray that God would give you greater understanding of the death of His beloved Son.
