Why ‘Holy Saturday’
Holy Saturday is a strange day in the churches calendar – It is the day after we remember the pain and agony on the cross and it is the day before we remember Jesus rising from the tomb.
As such it has a sense of the ‘now, but not yet’ about it. And for many people who live with disability in their lives that is also a part of our experience. We live in the pain and struggle with our disabled bodies, but we also live in the hope and expectation of meeting with Jesus’ glory in and through those struggles
In this time of Covid-19 where many others are now experiencing this – we hope this can be a resource to help in times of trial.
A quick video to sum up today
We adore you O Christ and we bless you,
because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
