Holy Saturday

God, the living God who called Abraham, created a people in the Exodus, and who spoke through the Prophets, this God is a good Jew.

So also God the Son incarnate in Jesus Christ is a good Jew. Thus, Jesus rests on this most holy Sabbath day. The great work of the Resurrection, of re-creating and renovating creation, will have to wait until the first day begins, after the Sun goes down tonight.
