Holy Saturday is always such an odd day. Began this morning with Morning Prayer. I don’t think that I’ve ever prayed the office on this day before – it always seems a like a day when to pray in words is impossible. However Psalm 88 did the trick this morning.
Highlights so far this week have been the stripping of the church, the procession and watch on Maundy Thursday, “God So Loved the World” on Friday evening and all the folk who turned up for the mother of all spring cleaning sessions this morning.
However, we have not peaked yet. Tomorrow is the highpoint.
The fire liturgy and vigil tomorrow at 0700 promises to be very special. The 1030 will include the Halleluia Chorus sung by the whole company as the gradual, (bring a copy of the score if you have one) and then a champagne reception prior to the motorbike ride-past.
The evening gets going with a glorious festival Evensong at 1830 and continues with a ceilidh until late.
