'For us Christians, however, there is another 'Sabbath' which lies in the very heart of our faith: Holy Saturday, set within the Paschal Triduum of death and resurrection of Jesus and marked out as a time of intense suffering, waiting and hope.'

Carlo Maria Martini

'Holy Saturday is a Sabbath of deep silence. For the Disciples it was a time of mourning; their hearts were still full of the sorrowful images connected with Jesus' death; a death which seemed to be the end of their messianic hopes. It is also a Sabbath of Mary, the faithful Virgin, the Ark of the Covenant, the Mother of Love. For her, Holy Saturday was a time of tears, but also an experience of the strength of faith in which she sustained the fragile hope of the Disciples. It seems to me that reflecting on 'Holy Saturday' experienced by the Apostles, but above all by Mary, might help us to recover our vision, catch our breath and begin to see ourselves as pilgrims in the 'Sabbath of Time' journeying toward the Sunday without sunset.'
