   Holy Saturday   

The earth—our earthly nature—
         should tremble at the suffering of its Redeemer.  
The rocks—the hearts of unbelievers—
         should burst asunder.  
The dead, imprisoned in the tombs of their mortality, 
         should come forth, the massive stones now ripped apart. . . . 
What is to happen to our bodies 
         should now take place in our hearts.  

Saint Leo the Great
