“Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.”
John Paul II

“To be sure, it was not Easter Sunday but Holy Saturday, but, the more I reflect on it, the more this seems to be fitting for the nature of our human life: we are still awaiting Easter; we are not yet standing in the full light but walking toward it full of trust.”
Pope Benedict XVI, Milestones: Memoirs, 1927-1977

“On Holy Saturday I do my best to live in that place, that wax-crayon place of trust and waiting. Of accepting what I cannot know. Of mourning what needs to be mourned. Of accepting what needs to be accepted. Of hoping for what seems impossible.”
Jerusalem Jackson Greer, A Homemade Year: The Blessings of Cooking,

“Mary Magdalene…….

Thou, sharing in the awful doom,
Didst help thy Lord to die;
Then, weeping o’er his empty tomb,
Didst hear him Mary cry.

He stands in haste; he cannot stop;
Home to his God he fares:
‘Go tell my brothers I go up
To my Father, mine and theirs.’

Run, Mary! lift thy heavenly voice;
Cry, cry, and heed not how;
Make all the new-risen world rejoice-
Its first apostle thou!”
George MacDonald
