Holy Week Special: Black Saturday

Black Saturday or Sabado de Gloria has the traditional silence and solemnity from the previous day spill over. Preparations are made for the Easter Vigil to be celebrated that evening.

Some parishes have a presentation where Judas hangs himself because of his treachery towards Jesus.

Black Saturday Gospel:
Saturday, April 23, 2011 
Holy Saturday Night: The Easter Vigil

Psalm 42:3, 5; Psalm 43:3-4 (Read when baptism is celebrated) 
(Ps) Isaiah 12:2-6 or Psalm 51:12-15, 18-19 (Read when baptism is not celebrated)

8) Epistle: Romans 6:3-11

9) Gospel: Mark 16:1-7

We confess that one and the same Christ, Lord, and only-begotten Son, is to be acknowledged in two natures without confusion, change, division or separation. The distinction between the natures was never abolished by their union, but rather the character proper to each of the two natures was preserved as they came together in one person (prosopon) and one hypostasis.
-- Council of Chalcedon
