Holy Saturday

Rembrand, The Descend from the Cross

There was a garden in the place where he was crucified, and in the garden there was a new tomb in which no one had ever been laid...They laid Jesus there (St John 19:41-42)

When I saw the blood running from the wounds of Jesus, the thirst of all souls entered my heart.(...) Oh, each day since this special blessing [Pranzini], my desire to save these souls grew. I felt I heard Jesus tell me, "Give me something to drink!" (St Therese The Story of a Soul)
