A Collect for Holy Saturday

“The joy of our hearts has ceased; our dancing has been turned to mourning.”

God of heaven and earth, whose grief rent the curtain of the temple and shook the foundations of the earth, rend also our hearts at the loss we have suffered, and may our bones be shaken at the suffering we have caused; cause us to be silent on this most grievous of days when our Lord, our teacher, our friend was taken from us and sealed away in the earth, through him, your only begotten son. Amen.
