Holy Saturday

Today we keep vigil.  Jesus has died and was placed in the tomb, and we wait. In today's Office of Readings there is an ancient homily for Holy Saturday.  We read how, while the world sits in sorrow, Jesus decended to the place of the dead, and raises Adam and Eve from their graves, along with all those faithful to God who were awaitng the Savior to release them from their bondage and  to join Him in heaven.  I need not say more, for the homily says it all.  Today we keep vigil...
