Proper Liturgies for Special Days – Holy Saturday

There is no celebration of the Eucharist on this day.When there is a Liturgy of the word, the Celebrant begins with the
Collect of the Day

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.
