Great Saturday (Orth.)



In the Orthodox tradition, Great Saturday commemorates the burial of Christ and His descent into Hades. It is the old day for Baptisms, the day on which catechumens (converts) were baptised during the liturgy of the Eucharist. Even today, the celebration of Easter still begins with the liturgy on the evening of Holy Saturday.
