Great Three Days of Easter – Holy Saturday

Victory over the Grave by Bernard PlockhorstWe continue our fasting in exited anticipation until … The Easter Vigil, waiting and watching, starts after nightfall. This is the time, above all others, for us to recommit and dedicate ourselves again in faith. An Easter fire is lit, and lights up every thing around. From it, we light the Easter Candle. The Candle is solemnly carried into church as the sign of the Light of Christ which overcomes the darkness of sin and death. In that light we read the story of what God has done for us from the dawn of creation until today, in the scriptures. We all renew our faith, and our Baptism into the Risen Christ. And so we go forward together to share in the food and drink of Life. As we make our prayers and sing our praises, our hope is that the Holy Spirit will free in our lives the full power of Christ’s Rising from the Dead.
