A meditation for Holy Saturday

Our Lady of Holy Saturday
On Holy Saturday the Church, spiritually united with Mary, remains in prayer at the tomb, where the body of the Son of God is lying inert, as it were in a condition of repose after the creative work of redemption brought about with his death (cf. Heb4:1-13).
