Holy Saturday

dead_to_sinHoly Saturday, 19 April

“We know that Christ, raised from the dead, dies no more; death no longer has power over him. As to his death, he died to sin once and for all; as to his life, he lives for God. Consequently, you too must think of yourselves as being dead to sin and living for God in Christ Jesus.” Rm 6:9-11

In truth – one thing is certain: there exists a night into whose solitude no voice reaches; there is a door through which we can only walk alone – the door of death. What does the article of the Creed that speaks of the descent into hell mean?  This article asserts that Christ strode through the gate of our final loneliness, that in his Passion he went down into the abyss of our abandonment. Where no voice can reach us any longer, there is He. Hell is thereby overcome. Death is hell no longer. Neither is the same any longer because there is Life in the midst of death, because Love dwells in it. From then on, only deliberate self-enclosure is hell. (Introduction to Christianity, Ratzinger, p.301)
