A Collect for Holy Saturday
Spirit of the Most High, whose voice may thunder or may whisper, grant us courage to walk in darkness and to stay present to our suffering, trusting that your will is good and your timing is wise and that resurrection will come even though we grieve in the present, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who was silent this day but ascended in time to the right hand of the Father in you. Amen.
'When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who was also a disciple of Jesus. He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus; then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. So Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn in the rock. He then rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb and went away. Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were there, sitting opposite the tomb.' - Matthew 27:57-61
