Great and Holy Saturday

Do not lament me, O Mother, seeing me in the tomb,
the Son conceived in the womb without seed,
for I shall arise and be glorified with eternal glory as God.
I shall exalt all who magnify you in faith and in love.
-Ode 9, Holy Saturday Matins

Today our Lord is conquering death. This is not a time to weep, rather let us await His victory in quiet joy and anticipation.
