Holy Saturday

Sentence   Christ became obedient unto death, even on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name. (Philippians 2:8-9)
Collect   O God, Creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the crucified body of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
