Holy Saturday was the day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. It was a dark day during which the followers of Jesus knew nothing but despair, fear and pain.
Yes, they had the Prophets and Jesus’ own words predicting his resurrection…but they weren’t sure if these words were just empty rhetoric thrown out to give false hope to their desires of a promised Messiah.
Holy Saturday. A day of doubt and uncertainty.
A day during which one can actually make a “real” Choice. One not made in the heat of passion during which a choice is but the next logical step on a journey – but one made in the darkness of life when sure nothing is known.
It is ONLY then, during the Holy Saturdays of life, that a choice becomes a Choice.
