Today is Easter Saturday. Not a day marked on most calendars.
But it is a very important day nonetheless -- the day that Christ spent separated from the rest of God, cut off from God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. It's the day that history hung in the balance, the day between Christ's death and resurrection.
Perhaps you would like to think again on the title of your "blog"-"Easter Saturday".
The day after Good Friday is not and has never been "Easter Saturday". It is Holy Saturday. The Saturday after Easter Sunday is Easter Saturday!
Thanks for pointing out that the following Saturday is "Easter Saturday". I wasn't meaning "Easter Saturday" in a formal sense, just noting that the Saturday of Easter weekend is actually a significant day.
(As I read the story, Christ rose on the day after the shabbat - Sunday, the third day (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). Where does "Easter Monday" come in to the picture?)
