Holy Saturday, Sabbatum Sanctum

A woman waits outside the tombs at Lalibela, Ethiopia.

While the body of her Son lays in the tomb and his soul has descended to the dead to announce liberation from the shadow of darkness to his ancestors, Mary waits, in faith, the victorious triumph of her Son over death.

Agonized, attentive, grieving, exhausted, we wait.

“The Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him” (Habakkuk 2:20).
