Easter Weekend

Everyone Christian knows about Easter Sunday and most people have heard of Good Friday (the day commemorating Jesus's death). But what is the Saturday in between called?


Today is called Holy Saturday. In Roman Catholic Churches, the altar is completely bare while the Church is in a state of mourning. The administration of the sacraments is severely limited and given between Good Friday and Easter only to dying persons for their salvation.
