Prayer for Holy Saturday

O God of our darkest night, when your Son was absent from us as you were absent from him: may your Spirit nevertheless breathe gently upon us as we huddle together in the darkling fright of the tomb. Amen.

For music, Paula Matthussen’s “of an implacable subtraction,” performed by Dana Jessen on bassoon and Mantra Percussion on electronics:


  1. Thank you for all of the thought and care and effort you’ve put into this it. It has made Lent so much more meaningful for me. I looked forward to this each day.

  2. My pleasure, Leona. Thanks for praying with me.
