Holy Saturday reflection

Good Friday through Holy Saturday, 40 hours between Christ’s Death and Resurrection

After Christ’s body was laid in the tomb, it is presumed his disciples gathered, wrought with wonder, wrought with anguish, wrought with worry, wrought with sorrow.

Our Christian faith teaches us that during this time The Lord descends among the dead to announce to them the end of death. He has come to restore the original plan. God did not make death, Scripture tells us, nor does He rejoice in the destruction of the living. Most especially through abortion.

Through Isaiah, God spoke of what would happen on this holy night: “On this mountain, He will destroy the veil that veils all peoples, the web that is woven over all nations. He will swallow up death forever” (Is. 25:7-8).

Today is a day to meditate on the Lord’s tomb. In that tomb are the millions of children killed by abortion. They shared in the suffering of death, shared by God Himself, in order to destroy and conquer from the grave.

All human beings, including pre-born babies are joined to the Son of God by His incarnation.

On Holy Saturday, Christ joins humanity, including aborted babies, in the darkness of the grave. He allows that darkness to overcome Him only so that with dawn, He will overcome it — forever.
