Holy and Great Saturday Resource Page


On Holy and Great Saturday, we celebrate the Burial of the Divine Body of our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ, and His descent into Hades, through which our race was recalled from corruption, and was transplanted to eternal life.

Verses

In vain you watchmen guard the tomb.
No grave can contain the Source of Life.
