Holy Saturday


“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16 (ESV)

On this Holy Saturday, we wait in quiet anticipation, holding onto the hope of resurrection and return. Rev Christopher Chan, Acting Vicar of St Andrew’s Cathedral, has this to say:

On Holy Saturday, we find ourselves in a period of waiting: the darkness of Good Friday still surrounds us as we yearn for the joy of Easter Sunday. Perhaps this mirrors an ongoing painful experience from which we long to be delivered? May we wait patiently for redemption and vindication from God, holding fast to the hope of resurrection life in the new creation, where we shall see His face and rejoice in His presence forevermore.

If you are wondering about the significance of the so-called Holy Saturday, please review our blog post on “Holy Saturday – The Significance.” A Holy Saturday reflection on earthly suffering is found on this post, “Holy Saturday Reflection: Why Is There Suffering?

May our good Lord minister deeply to you on this Holy Saturday, the in-between day of Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday.

Selah and shalom.
