Holy Saturday Liturgy

Description

During the Holy Saturday liturgy when the biblical verse from Matthew 28:2 is recited, parishioners pound their hands on the pews in front of them to make the sounds of the earthquake heard as the angel rolled the stone away from Jesus’ tomb. This moment in the service signals that Jesus has been resurrected and Holy Saturday has transitioned to Easter Sunday. (Amy DeRogatis)
