So what does whole Saturday teach us? Mostly it’s about humanity. Traditionally, this is a solemn day of mourning. We are called to act as if someone be beloved in our family has died; we were asked to consider what it would have been like if we were close friends of Jesus when his wife was taken.

Holy Saturday offers are remedy. The entire Christian message stands as a countercultural emblem that shouts out to a suffering world that Hope truly does reign.
Hope it’s not blind trust nor a mental exercise in spiritual roulette that an outcome will turn out exactly as we desire. Hope is a condition in friendship when you know your friend is with you, even when He is not physically next to you. Hope is the capacity to see that we are never truly alone and that God can overcome any obstacle, even death.
Holy Week personifies Christian hope. During Holy Saturday, we’d well to ponder two questions in particular: First, But we have left Christ all alone and His suffering? Second, how are we being asked to journey with others in their suffering today?
Good Friday unveil the rejection of Jesus, but that denial leads to hiding for the entire weekend. We are told that Jesus appears to his disciples, on the night of the first Passover, in an upper room, where, the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear, that they also be persecuted.
Of course, this means they were hiding since they deserted Jesus on Maundy Thursday evening, Content with allowing fear to trump hope and love. Unfortunately, there are countless Christians who choose to ignore Him and hide Hid importance Even in the holiest of days.
A day between Jesus’s death and the resurrection stands at a pivitol juncture between despair and Hope, fear and courage, death and new life. Holy Saturday was a real point in time, but it also symbolizes the current state of the world.
We are in a time in place between darkness and light, destruction and renewal. We are in desperate need of looking for brighter days for our country, politics, church, and the world. The tendency to turn inwards and become an individualistic must be avoided at all costs because we see more clearly now than ever,That isolation has awful consequences.That isolation has awful consequences.
Widespread suffering will strike again, it may not be coronavirus but suffering will strike again we must turn to others and embrace their presence as our hope. Holy week act as a prism into a cyclic nature of every person’s life. Everyone experiences times and great joy that sometimes turn into great tribulation.
He is to always remember that trials and darkness never last forever. The empty tomb always turned up empty in our lives always recover if we hold fast to hope. In our current times, Holy Saturday It’s lasting more than a day but the outcome remains the same.
How do you sit inside of the gloom of Holy Saturday and rightfully mourn the death of our Lord, Just recall that the only path forward is found in our loving relationship with others and in standing firm with our God.
