What is Holy Saturday?

During that vigil, a priest ; blesses a flame that is used to light a candle that represents the Risen Lord. Members of the congregation quickly follow by lighting their own small candles. Seven readings are read, before praying the ?Gloria.? It?s also here that Catholics renew their baptismal promises. On this day, some adults joining the Church, receive the Sacrament of Baptism.
