Holy Saturday

Holy Saturday stands as a day of serene contemplation and anticipation for Christians, serving as a moment to mourn the death of Jesus and prepare for his imminent resurrection.

According to the Catholic Liturgical Calendar, Holy Saturday commemorates the vigil observed by Christ's followers outside his tomb as they awaited his resurrection. The sole mass conducted is the Easter Vigil held at sundown on Saturday. In the early history of the Church, Holy Saturday was the sole Saturday allowing fasting. Although fasting is no longer obligatory today, some Christians may opt to restrict their meals or abstain from consuming meat on this day.
