My son just informed me that at his university, the schedule for the Triduum is: "Holy Thursday 7pm, Good Friday 3pm, Holy Saturday 9:30am, and Easter Vigil on Saturday at 8:30pm."
I thought nothing was supposed to happen on Saturday, as Christ has died and has not yet risen. And then the Saturday night Mass is actually the Vigil Mass for Easter.
So, surely this 9:30am event would not be a Mass? What else could it be?
the Monastic Community where my seminary is at will have Morning Prayer Office of Readings (at the normal time for mass) and vespers (which is official part of the Easter Season)
the church has more liturgies then just the (big S) Sacraments
In the Catholic Liturgy of the Hours said by all priests
there is Morning prayer Daytime and Office of readings on Saturday. Evening prayer is part of the Easter Season and so is Night prayer.
But all other liturgies (except anointing of the sick, which really is a liturgy) are not done on this day. The one day where there is no consecration of the Eucharist.
