Friends of the Rosary,

Today, on Holy Saturday (from Sabbatum Sanctum, its official liturgical name), also known as Saturday of the Glory, the Church remembers and mourns Christ in the tomb. We pray and meditate on his Passion and Death and his Descent to the Dead to announce liberation from the shadow of darkness.

It is not Easter yet, and the day is usually spent working on the final preparations for the biggest feast of the Church year.

The entire body of the Church is represented in Mary, as she awaits, in faith, the victorious triumph of her Son over death and the celebration of his resurrection.

Christ rests in peace, after the great battle against sin and evil. We see the mortal wounds and the scars of intense suffering upon Him. Jesus’ enemies are still furious, attempting to obliterate the memory of the Lord by lies and slander.

The Church abstains from the Sacrifice of the Mass, with the sacred table left bare, until after the solemn Vigil, the anticipation by night of the Resurrection.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!

Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!
