April 10, 1998.
On Holy Saturaday the Church waits at the Lord's tomb,
meditating on His suffering and death. The altar is left bare, and the
sacrifice of the Mass is not celebrated. Only after the solemn vigil
during the night, held in anticipation of the resurrection, does the Easter
celebration begin, with SPIRIT OF JOY THAT OVERFLOWS INT THE FOLLOWING
PERIOD OF FIFTY DAYS.
