VI. Holy Saturday
73. On Holy Saturday, the Church is, as it were, at the Lord's tomb,
meditating on his passion and death and on his descent into hell,
awaiting his resurrection with prayer and fasting. It is highly recommended that
on this day, the Office of Readings and Morning Prayer be celebrated with the
participation of the people (cf. n.40). 
Where this cannot be done, there should be some celebration of the word of God
or some act of devotion suited to the mystery celebrated this day.
74. The image of Christ crucified or lying in the tomb or the descent into
hell, which mystery Holy Saturday recalls, as also an image of the sorrowful
Virgin Mary, can be placed in the church for the veneration of the faithful.
75. On this day, the Church abstains strictly from celebration of the
sacrifice of the Mass.  Holy Communion may
only be given in the form of Viaticum. The celebration of marriages is
forbidden, as is also the celebration of other sacraments, except those of
penance and the anointing of the sick.
76. The faithful are to be instructed on the special character of Holy
Saturday.  Festive customs and traditions
associated with this day because of the former practice of anticipating the
celebration of Easter on Holy Saturday should be reserved for Easter night and
the day that follows.
