Fr. Alessandro's Video

Fr. Alessandro Borracia said something very beautiful in a video he posted for his parish (Holy Spirit Catholic Parish) on Facebook. He said this experience is our extended "Holy Saturday" and we can connect with the 12 Apostles and Mary Magdalene who were scared, sad, upset, angry that Jesus was taken away from them in death. We might feel the same way about Jesus being taken away from us in the Eucharist since we are not able to receive Him in the Eucharist. This is our "Holy Saturday", and it is a perfect opportunity to go to Mary and ask her how she bore it, how she went through all that pain with Jesus being dead at that time, and to show us how we can bear it ourselves.

Pray the Rosary. Maybe even pray the Seven Sorrows of Mary. Take this opportunity to grow closer to the Blessed Mother.
