Holy Saturday at the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem

The Easter Vigil Mass at the Basilica of the Resurrection (the Holy Sepulchre), on the morning of Holy Saturday. A temporary inconsistency (due to the agreement called the Status Quo which governs the relationships of the various Christian denominations who use the basilica) with the rest of the Church, but it is a happy event, for the Mother Church in Jerusalem is thereby the first proclaim the Resurrection in an ancient hymn which sings of the victory of Christ over death and sin.
