Holy Saturday: In Stillness, We Wait

The Church is silent this day.  Silence can at times be deafening.  The Church waits by the tomb in great anticipation.  We know how the story ends.  We know what is too come, but there is still so much to meditate upon when we look back at what happened over the last two days.  When we think back to the Last Supper, the Agony, the Trial, the Passion, the Crucifixion, and all the rituals and ceremonies we experienced, it merits extra reflection.  This is why we wait.  We wait for the new dawn. We wait for the new light.  We wait for new life.  In stillness, we wait for the newness of Easter and the blessing the Risen One will bring.
