Holy Saturday.

Avril 11, 1998.

Calvary Cross

On Holy Saturday 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 a spirit of joy that overflows into the following period of fifty days.
