Candle Lighting – Holy Saturday

The Lenten table centrepiece remains covered with a black cloth.

NOTE:   Though there are no candles to light this day, the following will acknowledge

             that Holy Saturday marks the time between Jesus’ death, his absence and

             his resurrection.

 

Read:     Lamentations 1: 16

 

Question:    Why do we light no candles this day?

Response:    We light no candles this day to remind us that Jesus died, was buried

                    and descended to the dead.

Question:    Where does our hope lay?

Read:           Lamentations 3: 21-24

 

Pray:      We miss You.  Holy Saturdays are the hardest days.  But we will trust

              You, for nothing is impossible for God.   Amen.
