Holy Saturday Service – March-30th at 7:30AM

The Malankara Orthodox Holy Saturday Liturgical service is conducted traditionally in the mid morning of Saturday in the Holy week. On Great and Holy Saturday the Church contemplates the mystery of the Lord’s descent into Hades, the place of the dead. Death, our ultimate enemy, is defeated from within. Christ gave Himself as a ransom to death in which we were held captive, sold under sin. Descending into Hades through the Cross … He loosened the bonds of death” (Liturgy of St. Basil).

Great Saturday is the day of the pre-eminent rest. Christ observes a Sabbath rest in the tomb. His rest, however, is not inactivity but the fulfillment of the divine will and plan for the salvation of humankind and the cosmos. Through His incarnation, life and death Christ has filled all things with Himself He has opened a path for all flesh to the resurrection from the dead.
