Holy Saturday 2020
It’s not Easter yet. Today 11 April is Holy Saturday.
(Easter Saturday is the end of next week, Easter Week.)
This year Holy Saturday feels even more a day of limbo and abnormal. It will feel a long day as it must have for the disorientated disciples. We cannot shorten it by lighting an Easter Vigil Fire outside church at dusk. .
But this afternoon at 4pm there is the opportunity to meditate before the Shroud of Turin via a live online feed.
The Shroud is widely believed, thanks to recent scientific work, to be the cloth which was wrapped around Jesus’s body. It will be found neatly folded tomorrow morning.
