Holy Saturday explained:
The keeping silence with Our Lord as he rests in the tomb and in a very special way, Christians throughout different parts of the world have always associated this day with Our Lady grieving for her Son but waiting for her Son to be born again in the Resurrection.

To be able to stop and pause for a few moments and to think of all the sadness and suffering that has passed but also in expectation of the life that is going to be ours through the Resurrection of Christ.
